    Research in the field of nuclear and particle physics is an upcoming stream. Huge investments are being made towards research and development in this area. The first step towards this would be to take a masters degree. After Masters you could take up a doctorate in this area. In India IIT’s, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, Jadavpur University, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics are some of the institutes which off specialization in the field of nuclear and particle physics. Some of the institutes offering these courses abroad include Ohio University, TRIUMF Canada etc. Job opportunities in this area are plenty. Two main organisations in India where intake of nuclear physists is high are ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) and DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organization). But still in India research in this field is less compared to what is happening abroad.

    Research in Nuclear and Particle Physics is challenging, but they have good potential and they are an upcoming stream. As you have planned to do the research work, the first step for that is to take Masters Degree in Nuclear Physics. This will give you enough knowledge and exposure in this field. Masters degree in Nuclear physics deals with scientific study of the properties and thorough understanding of the atomic structure of matter. Nuclear physicist is required in organization connected with power generation, material engineering and medicine. After you have completed your Masters you can proceed to do your research work with much more confidence and ease. Some of the colleges offering Masters degree are:

    • IIT Kanpur
    • Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore
    • Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics

    Job in nuclear physics exists in research and educational institute in India, scholars are appointed as scientist, specialist and fellowship scholars in research institution. ISRO, DRDO are major recruiters.
