Jobs; I’m a physics grad-student, and I’m interested in moving to crypto after my degree.

For background, I’m a masters physics student and while going around a programming sub long ago, someone said that crypto is great fun! So I joined the coursera course and I loved it! The amount of algebra is great and I love it. I’m also quite versed in programming/Networking/OS’s (particularly Linux) and so on… And I wondered, could I make a living out of crypto? Is it better if I keep studying till I get a Ph.D + a few postdocs or stop at Masters? How employable am I with a Ph.D/Masters + a few certs? And do you think I’m better suited for another field within IT maybe? (maybe outside IT, but I doubt I’ll be interested)

Ofc I would be delighted if I could stay in Physics academia, since I like it a bit, but seeing the fierce competition I doubt I’ll be able to stay reliably without sacrificing my life basically.

I also thought quantum crypto/computing will still be in the labs for a while. Do you perceive it this way? Are there any real job prospects in that? And what is it like working there?

Cryptography is the art of creating mathematical assurances for who can do what with data, including but not limited the classical example of encrypting messages so that only the key-holder can read it. Cryptography lives at an intersection of math, programming, and computer science. This subreddit covers the theory and practice of modern and *strong* cryptography, and it is a technical subreddit focused on the algorithms and implementations of cryptography.
