I've currently had my proposal accepted at a good university in Britain, this with the assistance of a wonderful professor there. However, it does appear the better path for me would be to shift this to a university in Bruxelles for a variety of reasons (the first being I've moved there, though there are better funding opportunities as well).
First, I'm wondering if this is frowned upon, and if I'm doing a disservice to my former supervisor, who I'd love to still work with if possible. I'd hoped to integrate this between two universities, though am reaching a bit of a hurdle here as well.
Second, and perhaps for the reasons listed above, I've had a bit of an issue maintaining contact with individuals in the departments who would be interested in my research. I've taken the time to look over potential supervisors' papers, and have received response from one professor who has since gone silent.
As I do know what I'm looking to do, and who I'm wanting to set up a meeting with - and since the issue is now becoming quite time-sensitive due to pursuance of funding - I'm getting a bit frustrated I cannot set up a meeting, this despite weekly attempts at contacting professors.
I know this most likely sounds a bit complicated, but I'm afraid I'm starting to feel that I'm spinning my wheels; I've not much experience (outside of my degrees) with what to expect in the academia, and don't want to push things that shouldn't be pushed; however, if someone responds, and then goes silent, should I take this as a sign there's no interest? Sigh.
Okay, somewhere in there there's a question. Thanks to anyone who may be able to help.
Best Wishes Jim
