Want to build a career in physics - need advice

  1. Dec 29, 2011 #1
    Hello everyone.

    I recently graduated in physics, acquiring the equivalent of a master's degree in most countries. I'm interesting in pursuing a carrer in geophysics. I don't have any particular area in mind yet; I'm interested in anything from seismology, volcanology to hydrology. As long as it's interesting, I'm game.

    I fear my home country doesn't offer enough challenge in this particular professional area so I'm planning to take an internship somewhere abroad (preferably in an English speaking country but I'm flexible on this subject). Can anyone suggest a good place to start looking for internships? I've already applied for Leonardo da Vinci program for 2012 but even if that succeeds I still have to find the internship placement by myself.

    My thanks for any constructive answers you can send my way.
