    You have to be a little more specific with your question, dpa.

    There are all sorts of avenues open to people who study physics, not just those that involve teaching.

    I believe dpa's question was: "What sort of jobs can I get with a doctorate in physics (besides teaching)? And how tough is it to get employed in those jobs?"
