Some level-headed advice from the Institute of Physics.

Most people don’t hope to get a 2:2 when they enter university.

Neither are thirds the things that dreams are made of. And with most postgraduate courses and high-powered jobs in research being limited to those with 2:1 and up, you have the right to be a bit miffed. But, on the other hand, the world has by no means ended and you have the rest of your life to live, so what’s your next move?

2.1? 2.2? Graduate jobs for physicists

Gradcracker is currently advertising some great jobs for physicists with AWE. Vacancies include:

  • computational physicist
  • material modelling physicist
  • pulsed power physicist
  • radiation effects physicist

Leonardo, YouView, Brett Martin, KBR and National Instruments are all recruiting through Gradcracker too.

Not all organisations ask for a minimum 2.1 and some don’t specify but they will be looking for strong motivation, interest and a tailored application.

If you are on track for a 2.2, look at Brett Martin, KBR, National Instruments, for example. Start researching small and medium sized organisations too.
