[D] Is it just me, or are PhD opportunities in Europe very scarce at the moment?
I’ve been looking for a PhD in machine learning/deep learning/computer vision/etc. for a while, but I don’t seem to find many offers.
Leaving aside the UK for a moment (where perhaps there are a bit more options, but not that many), the options in the continent seem to be very rare.
I go to the labs websites, the uni pages, contact some profs, but I’ve barely found a handful of offers in ETH, KTH, TUM and Delft. And as soon as you start being a bit picky, you end up with just one or two offers on the table to apply to.
Has anyone from Europe experienced this too?
I wonder if there are some mailing list that I’m unaware of, or if this has been the norm lately and positions go out on a rolling basis throughout the year.
It’s just weird reading about US people being rejected from so many PhD positions, but here I can’t even apply to a few.
Any advice is appreciated.
