I've applied for Maths ug. course at Cambridge, UK and I want to get a master (maybe PhD) degree in the US. I'm a bit afraid of not getting a job that I want after the university.
I'd like to keep researching in my interest (networks, probability, cryptography).
What do you think how hard it will be to get a suitable job and not to become a programmer or a living calculator for a bank?
What salary should I expect compared to an IT job?
