Hello, Do you think the university where you did your phd is important when it comes to finding a job / a postdoc / a professorship? Question applies in the US but also in Europe. Let's say I have a master of science from the one of the best universities in Europe, and I am accepted at various universities in Europe and in the US for my phd. Would it be a bad idea to go to a university that is not so well known if one has the possibility to go to the most renowned graduate schools? The reason I ask is because I would rather go to place X, which is a university somewhere in western europe that is not well known but where a few people are working in the field I am interested in. I like the city, life is not so expensive there I can get good fundings. Will it make any difference later?
