Physicist with background in diffusion, simulationwhat after PhD?

  1. Nov 11, 2009 #1
    Hi there,

    as the title already suggests, I'm currently a phd student focusing on molecular simulation of diffusion phenomena. I took this position, because I'm very interested in the application and development of simulation methods in general. However, for my taste there is simply way to much chemistry involved there, so that I often simply don't know elementary things, that every chemist master would know, and which is why I have to spend lots of time to learn chemistry basics instead of focusing on physics. :(
    (I don't want to talk badly about chemistry, it is simply not my thing and not what I learned)

    That's why I was wondering, if someone knows other fields of research, where simulation experience and interest is needed and that has more emphasis on physics. So that I might have some chances to switch to another field after my PhD, because I have a background in a more or less related field. (Not necessarily academic, also industry etc.)

    Does anyone have some hints for me?

    Thx in advance.

    The Black-Scholes equation which is the core of mathematical finance is just a diffusion equation.
