Physicistsstudy the ways in which matter and energy interact. The nature of time, space, matter, and the origin of the universe are topics that a theoretical physicist might investigate. These researchers spend some time working in offices, but also conduct research in laboratories. A Ph.D. is needed for most of these research jobs. Many theoretical physicists begin their careers in temporary postdoctoral research positions.
Physicist may work as a Researched in a Company in their Research & Development Department, or a Lecturer in a University/Polytechnic/College of Education
