    I'm enrolling on a Nuclear Engineering (MEng) degree programme and I am looking ahead at career pathways. The problem lies in the fact that many advertised jobs in the nuclear industry involves some sort of safety or managerial role, which may not be my greatest strengths.

    I'm interested in nuclear fuel cycles and coolants especially, is there much of a career in that sort of role? If it involves inspecting, engineering, or researching/developing nuclear fuels and coolants then I'd be very interested. I've looked into options abroad and it seems the US has many well-paying jobs for me, except I would need to apply for a EB1/EB2 Green Cards.

    The ideal role would be something like http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/ANY408/phd...ctor-coolants/ except more permanent.

    I've looked into starting salaries and career progression, it seems Engineers get about £25,000-£35,000 at the start? I'd prefer to start on over £30,000 towards £65,000 mid-career, is this realistic?
