Physics B.S. E.E. Ph.D. What next ?

  1. Aug 26, 2014 #1
    Hello Physics Forums.

    I am looking at finishing my Ph.D. here within the next year or so. I am looking to continue in academic work. My PhD work has mostly been directed deeper into physics (semiconductor and 2D materials) despite being in the EE department (there is a lot of need for basic research due to recent grants).

    I am not sure how competent I am as an "electrical engineer" - though I have managed to master many EE related topics during my very physics heavy EE Ph.D. I also have a very strong background in computer science as well. I would like to stay in Europe, as this is close to home for me.

    Any ideas of what direction I can take my research (or better ... where ??)I would like to go back into experimental physics in some capacity.

    I don't know almost anything about EE, but here is a nice research center in Belgium, have a look.
