TEP = trouble?

  1. Sep 22, 2005 #1
    How hard is it to get a job as a professor in theoretical high-energy physics?
    Now? Next 5 years? 10?


    The few professors and fellow students I've talked to over the past six months saw it as a challenge because (1) there are (and probably will be for some time -- comments?) so few slots for TEP professors; and (2) those who actually vie for those few slots are extremely qualified (well-known thesis advisor/school, top marks, great pub record, &c). Some of my colleagues said it would be easier to get academic work as a phenomenologist.

    What do you think? Any current students or faculty willing to offer advice?
