[D] What are the best universities/colleges to be an ML prof?
I’m currently at that point at the end of my PhD where I all of a sudden need to start applying for jobs. I’m applying for both post-docs and prof positions. I thought it’s worth a shot even though my guess is that it’s not likely to get a prof position at a high-tier institution straight out of a PhD.
It looks like there are a ton of tenure-track positions open across Europe and North America. How do you choose between them? What are the factors that are important to consider when applying for prof jobs? (e.g. is the number of papers the department gets into NeurIPS a good metric?) And are there any universities that are generally considered the best for ML profs?
