Physics is a field of natural science that deals with the study of matter and energy and how they travel through space and time. Physicists are trained professionals that conduct a variety of research to understand the universe and all of its components.

Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a physicist do?

Physicists study and identify basic laws and principles that govern the structure, energy, motions, and interactions of matter. They create and conduct experiments with a variety of equipment such as electron microscopes, lasers, mass spectrometers, and particle accelerators. They use their observations and examinations to explain the laws the describe forces of nature such as electromagnetism, gravity, and nuclear interactions. Some physicists study theoretical applications, such as the origin of the universe; and others study practical applications, such as developing medical equipment. Some conduct basic research and other perform applied research. Physicists are also involved in the design of research equipment that will enable them to perform more in-depth study.

What kind of training does a physicist need?

Physicists typically need a doctorate degree in physics. A master degree may be sufficient for some positions. Prospective physicists complete rigorous instruction in mathematics and theories and methodology of physics. Most aspiring physicists participate in internships or work-study programs to gain practical experience while they are completing their education. Most new physicists start their careers in postdoctoral research positions where they work with experienced physicists to gain essential skills and experience. They initially perform simple tasks and move on to more complex tasks as they gain experience. Many physicists complete postdoctoral training to remain competitive in the field. Physicists must also stay up to date on advancements in the field and often complete continuing education throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as a physicist?

Employment of physicists is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 7% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The increased need for physics related research will drive job growth.

Job prospects should be good with strong competition for research positions. Many job openings will arise from the need to replace physicists that retire, transfer, or leave the profession for other reasons. Physicists with advanced education and experience will have the best job prospects.

How much do physicists make?

As of November 2009, the middle 50% of physicists earn annual salaries between $47,858 and $55,313. The top 10% earn annual salaries of more than $59,539 (2).

A career as a physicist is an excellent choice for individuals with a strong interest in physics and research. Physicists must have an inquisitive mind, strong mathematical ability, analytical skills, and excellent problem solving skills. They must be able to apply their knowledge of physics to a variety of issues. Physicists must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be able to work effectively as part of a team. Good written communication is also important because physicists often write proposals and research papers.
