Abstract: In this talk I will discuss my experiences as a physicist finding a job and working in the private sector. I will give some advice based on my own job search, and talk about some of the unique aspects of applying to engineering jobs as a physics graduate student. I will also talk about Northrop Grumman’s Future Technical Leaders program and working in the defense industry.
Bio: Brian is a Principal Systems Engineer and physicist working at Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. He joined Northrop Grumman in 2017 as a member of the Future Technical Leaders program, for which he is completing several one-year rotations to expand his technical expertise and develop his leadership skills. Brian earned his Ph.D. in physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017, studying low-temperature magnetic materials.
