Hi everyone,

I'm starting Co-op next winter and I'm looking for a job in Montreal. I'm not sure what kind of physics opportunities there are in the city. I know that Bombardier is in the area and that they may have jobs related to physics. There may also be opportunities at the universities there like McGill.

Does anyone have any experience they can share?

Thanks

I am not really familiar with the opportunities available in Montreal either, but one thing you can do is reach out to some local universities. Try talking to some people in the Physics department (or even engineering, math, cs if that can be applicable to you) and see if they have any advice/ideas.

That's definitely a good idea.

Lockheed Martin also has offices there and they do lots of work similar to to Bombardier.
A new planetarium opened there too. Though I doubt it would be a very technical position I wonder if they need people who know their astronomy.

for your question! Montreal is definitely a great city for physics opportunities. As you mentioned, Bombardier is a major player in the aerospace industry and they often have openings for physicists in their research and development department. Additionally, there are several universities in Montreal that have strong physics departments, including McGill, Université de Montréal, and Concordia University. These universities often have research positions and collaborations with industry partners, providing a diverse range of opportunities for physicists. I would also recommend checking out job listings on websites such as Indeed or LinkedIn to get a better idea of the current job market for physics in Montreal. Best of luck in your job search!
