As you have completed M. Sc in Physics then you can so for job opportunities in various fields like General Physics, Mathematical Methods for Physics, Classical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics, Solid State Physics, Electromagnetic, Electronics & Computer Science, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Biophysics, Electronics Instrumentation, Subatomic Physics etc.

Career Opportunities in Astrophysics:
Astronomy is the science which deals with the study of heavenly bodies and followings:
(a) Motions of these bodies, both real and apparent, and the laws which govern those motions.
(b) Forms, dimensions, masses, and surface features.
(c) Nature, constitution, and physical condition.
(d) The effects which they produce upon one another by their attractions and radiations.
(e) Their probable past history and future development.

Astronomy requires the use of most modern and advanced technologies like fabrication of modern telescopes, in building imaging and spectroscopic equipment to observe and analyze radiation received from the celestial objects. So you have many job opportunities as this filed is increased day by day.
