Current Employment Opportunities for Physicists

(Adopted by Council on April 23, 1994)

(Replaced by APS Statement 06.3, Career Options for Physicists)

Historically, students with degrees in physics have succeeded in a wide range of academic and non-academic careers. Therefore it is important for physics departments and their individual faculty members to make all their undergraduate and graduate students aware of the realities of the job market and to encourage them to prepare for a broad range of careers. Academic physics departments are urged to reexamine their programs in the light of changing opportunities.
