Hi everyone! I'm near to get a physics degree. Always like me nuclear physics, how can energy be obtained by a little cuantity of matter... I want to ask you,if you know, which is the work/tasks of a physicist in a nuclear central (if they can work there :) ). I would like to be more descriptibe,but, you can say, my english is not very good.

I'm guessing he wants to work in the control room of a nuclear power plant?

The physicists I know involved with nuclear power plants work on the core designs (the arrangements of the fuel assemblies, how much enrichment and best locations for the once-burned assemblies). This is really nuclear engineering but there is a lot of crossover. They can be employed by the power plant or by the fuel vendor.

And if we are already into nuclear plant:
