What area do computational physicists work in? Are computational physicists only hired in academia and the research sector or are they also hired in the industry sector? If so, what kinds of companies hires them? Reason I am asking is because currently I am an undergraduate student double majoring in physics and computer science because I want to go into computational physics. In case that doesn't work out I still have my computer science degree as a back-up so that I can go into software engineering. Sorry for the poor title. I was deciding whether to use where do and which area and ending up using both. For some reason it's not saving my change to the title.
