Does anyone know anything about getting on these teams or even what they do. Everything I've been able to find more or less says they respond to nuclear incidents.

I like physics but I don't what to be a professor, and I'll finish a degree in Civil Engineering and I hate engineering. I'm looking to do something more hands on. I'm not sure I would like Nuclear Engineering as a career, but I think it was by far the coolest part of my quantum mechanics class whenever we talked about it. I was tempted to post this in the Nuclear physics section but figured it would get moved here anyway.

Thanks,

Jeff

Your best bet for getting on to NEST:

  • Get a PhD in nuclear physics or a remote nuclear detection related field.
  • Work for NTS or one of the pertinent national labs (LANL, LLNL, SNL, etc.) in a remote detection area for 5-10 years.
  • Impress the right people.
