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.
