I am from India. Although selected as a PhD scholar at a US university in 2011, I got quite overwhelmed with the phd process and did not know how to proceed, what to do during the course: make networks, publish etc. Though I was able to finish my phd, it was not as expected. I could not extract papers, network with peers or professors for getting post phd job (post doc or teaching). I came back to India in 2019, remained unsatisfied but kept on working on research skills. got a research fellow job at an Indian university. it improved over time and as my confidence built further, I strongly feel the need to do another PhD/post doc abroad. What should I do.
It is very unusual to do a second PhD and I doubt you would be allowed to do one. Saying that a posdoc could solve a lot of your problems. It is common that PhD students don't get any publications during their PhD but go on to publish frequently during a post doc. It is great that you already have a research fellowship job and you could possibly use that to get a postdoc in the USA/Europe.
There is someone in my lab doing a second PhD, but the topic is different than her first.
I would suggest looking for a post-doc, more money, more chance to research what you like etc. The fact that you already have a research fellowship, that's the type of role you should be looking for next.
