  • Physics Today Jobs: Our specialized online job board offers ALL of your physics students - undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs -the opportunity to explore hundreds of new physical science and engineering jobs each month.  Advertised positions are focused yet varied, and include postdoctoral, tenure-track, senior academic, governmental, and industrial, as well as internships ideal for undergraduates still working on their Bachelors degree.The site also features many career resources designed to aid any job seeker in this ultra-competitive job market.

  • APS Online Career Center

  • TechCareers: Career-Related Resources, News and Job Postings for IT and Engineering Professionals

  • The American Institute of Physics Career Services Center is the leading career network for physics, engineering and related physical sciences.  It connects industry, academic and government employers with the most qualified, career-minded professionals.
  • American Association of Physics Teachers Career Center
  • MentorNet is the award-winning nonprofit e-mentoring network that addresses the retention and success of those in engineering, science and mathematics, particularly but not exclusively women. Founded in 1997, MentorNet provides highly motivated protégés from many of the world's top colleges and universities with positive, one-on-one, email-based mentoring relationships with mentors from industry and academia. In addition, the MentorNet Community provides opportunities to connect with others from around the world who are interested in diversifying engineering and science.
  • Landing Your First Job: A Guide for Physics Students by John S. Rigden (available in the library)
  • This document presents the first Professional Development Resource Guide that lists resources identified as important for the professional development of today’s scientists. This list is organized into ten chapters that represent steps that a scientist can take to improve their professional development while working concurrently on a technical project, which may include but is not limited to working on a PhD, completing a thesis, or working on a career. The ten steps have been identified by members of the American Physicsal Society (APS) Committee on Careers and Professional Development (CCPD). Interested readers are welcome to submit additional resources to be included in future editions.
  • Engineer Your Life, a national initiative developed in partnership with the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), seeks to encourage and inspire college-bound high school girls to integrate engineering into their future studies and careers. Anchoring this campaign is, a Web site for high school girls and the adults in their lives who want to learn more about what life and work are like for engineers.

Graduate School


  • Scientists and Engineers for America (SEA) has a new website at: , which is an interactive wiki that tracks the science, engineering, and health policy stances of Congress as well as the presidential and congressional candidates.


  • The PR2OVE-IT website is a dynamic and evolving digital clearinghouse that summarizes the available research on educational interventions designed to enhance student learning, retention, and professional success in post-secondary engineering and other allied sciences.
  • The second foundation established in the United States and the only one devoted to the advancement of science, Research Corporation was founded in 1912. Its operations are governed within the guidelines of a "private operating foundation," which means that it may perform activities related to science advancement in addition to funding others to carry on such activities.
