What's the physics scene like in France?

  • #1
How much research/development or experimentation in physics is done in France when compared to other countries, both in the EU and abroad? Are there a lot of physics positions outside of academia in France when compared to other countries? How difficult is it for a non-EU citizen to get into physics in France?

Can you provide more context? What areas of physics are you interested in?

In general, private sector physics jobs are going to be harder to find because companies will usually look for engineers or programmers for technical positions. Sometimes physics comes into play in defense fields. However, companies are often restricted to hiring citizens of good standing with the appropriate level of experience only.
