    Pharmaceutical industry is one of Britain's biggest earners - directly involves physics and chemistry.
    Batteries rely on chemistry and physics.
    Energy which is the life blood of industry and enterprise is dependant on chemistry and physics.
    Food depends on understanding the biology of the plants and animals that we eat. (and the fungi)
    Want to know the environmental impact of the way we live?
    Want to know how to handle substances safely?
    Want a low carbon future? ...
    You should be getting the picture.
    Everything depends on things that have been made or grown using scientific ideas. Without scientific understanding we are at the mercy of snake oil salesmen who spout a load of blah....
    Good luck with the interviews. You should remember that specialisms are joining many other things in the dustbin of education.
