Physicists

Outlook

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for physicists should grow at an average rate through 2024. Private industry budgets for research and development will continue to grow, but many laboratories are expected to reduce their physics-based research to focus on product and software development and applied or manufacturing research. Opportunities will exist for physicists who work with computer technology, information technology, semiconductor technology, and other applied sciences. Physicists with a specialty in medicine will likely find more opportunities.
