PARTICLE ACCELERATOR OPERATOR: Your Degree Doesn't Have To Determine The Rest Of Your Life

About this video 

Jill, a floor operator at an electron accelerator facility, spends her typical day aiding physicists and being the first line of defense when issues arise with the machines. She talks to us about her change in major in college and advises that you should do what excites you, not just what you are good at.

Degree: Physics
Job Title: Particle Accelerator Floor Operator
Employer: Synchrotron Light Source

Job Summary: Physicists

Job Description

Physicists and astronomers study the fundamental nature of the universe, ranging from the vastness of space to the smallest of subatomic particles. They develop new technologies, methods, and theories based on the results of their research that deepen our understanding of how things work and contribute to innovative, real-world applications.

On-the-Job Training

None

Additional Info

Many physics and astronomy Ph.D. holders begin their careers in a temporary postdoctoral research position, which typically lasts 2 to 3 years. During their postdoctoral appointment, they work with experienced scientists as they continue to learn about their specialties or develop a broader understanding of related areas of research. Their initial work may be carefully supervised by senior scientists, but as they gain experience, they do more complex tasks and have greater independence in their work.
