General Physical Science Series 1301 (Phys & Chem Degree)
These positions manage, supervise, lead, or perform research and development in the general field of physical sciences ( Chemistry & Physics). This series will also cover subcategorized and specialized degrees ( e.g. Chemical Physics, Physical Chemistry etc..) not specifically covered such as Chemical Engineering. This series is sometimes used to designate a position, which does not require a particular physical sciences specialty, but requires general knowledge of the broad physical sciences field with ability to manage personnel within it.
Physics positions 1310 (Physics degree)
These positions involve work that requires full professional education and training in the field of physics. Applying the study of matter and its motion through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. This series includes positions that advise, administer, supervise, or perform research or other professional and scientific work in the investigation and application of the relations between space, time, matter, and energy in the areas of mechanics, sound, optics, heat, electricity, magnetism, radiation, or atomic and nuclear phenomena. This series can potentially include all specialties in physics ( e.g. Nuclear Physics, Quantum Physics etc..).
Meteorology Series 1340 (Physics, Chemistry & Meteorological degree)
This series apply the scientific study of the atmosphere. Sub-disciplines of the atmospheric sciences include areas of study such as meteorology, climatology, atmospheric physics, and atmospheric chemistry. The work includes basic and applied research into the conditions and phenomena of the atmosphere; the collection, analysis, evaluation, and interpretation of meteorological data to predict weather and determine climatological conditions for specific geographical areas; the development of new or the improvement of existing meteorological theory; and the development or improvement of meteorological methods, techniques, and instruments. Given the interdisciplinary nature of this series appropriate chemistry, physics and atmospheric sciences degrees are applicable to this series.
