Where should I move on?

  1. Aug 20, 2009 #1
    hi friends,

    I am a particle physicist, and I have done 3 post-docs in three different international institutions. But now still I am looking for a permanent job. Due to the recession and funding cut of particle physics, there are no suitable positions for me and the competence is very strong now. So I really don't know where to go to find a job.

    I was nurtured by particle physics, but meanwhile I am a victim of particle physics. I have tried to find jobs in other sectors, but none of them was prevailed. My whole feeling was that I, as a physicist of high energy physics, am not accepted by software programming sectors, nor recognized by engineering fields.

    Can someone give me some ideas, please! I have been unemployed for six months!

    thx a lot.

    Perhaps you could promote some of your other skill sets if applicable (e.g. instrumentation & controls, signal processing & conditioning, project management, contract & proposal writing, and so on).
