Hello All,

My research interest is in ICME (Integrated Computational Materials Engineering). I'm looking for PhD in the same (ICME/Computational Materials Science for Additive Manufacturing, to be precise). Can you suggest me some good universities in Europe. I'm not considering US because of its lengthy nature, but if you've different opinion please do let me know.

I'm also open to positions in other continents.

Thanks,
Regards.

What languages can you speak?

Hi,

Well, English is the only international language I can speak. I've started to learn German, but I'm still in very beginner stage.

Thanks.

I was just asking as language can be a big barrier and going to the best university possible without knowing the language, might be a bad idea. Some countries have far higher English skills (cough Netherlands) than others which might make you PhD a lot easier.

SaltyAbs, you really need to be focussing more on the research group whose work interests you the most rather than on the university. Then having identified suitable groups you want to evaluate the computational resources they have access to.

You could also do a few lab visits (maybe 2 or 3 if you can manage it) and casually "interview" your prospective supervisors and their current students and postdocs. It might sound extreme but this is the sort of thing I wish I'd have done before starting my PhD, and I would never take a postdoc without doing this now. You'll probably just get a sense of which one you want to be a part of over the next 3-4 years of your life (and that one will probably be the one that would lead to the best outcomes). Good luck!
