Careers in Physics.
Johnson, Wilbur V.
This publication, a pamphlet included in the B'nai B'rith Occupational Brief Series, directs its attention to the personal traits and interests that a young person should possess to undertake serious study of physics. The nature of the science of physics is briefly presented, as well as the nature of the physicist. The subject matter of physics is described and a list of subfields is included. Careers in physics teaching, research, and administration are considered as three categories into which physicists fall. It is pointed out that the study of physics can also be used as a springboard to careers in other fields and presents several examples. Educational preparation and counseling services are presented. Factors related to job opportunities, salaries received, and employment outlook for men, women, Jewish and other minorities are reviewed. A selected bibliography is presented. (EB)
