The Training, Careers, and Work of Ph.D. Physical Scientists: Not Simply Academic.
Smith, Steven J.; Pedersen-Gallegos, Liane; Riegle-Crumb, Catherine
American Journal of Physics, v70 n11 p1081-92 Nov 2002
Presents an in-depth portrait of the training, careers, and work of recent Ph.D. physical scientists. Concludes that use of specialized training varies widely with about half often using knowledge of their Ph.D. specialty area in their jobs. The use of specialized training does not, however, correlate with job satisfaction. In this and other important measures, there are relatively few differences between "academics" and "nonacademics."
