I have serious doubts about how to ask PhD info to a professor, via email. Is there a possibility that a professor don't want to answer me? What I have to avoid to increase the possibility to obtain a response from them? When I see a site announcing a PhD open positions and then the form to send an email, only to ask more info, I shortly describe myself, my skills, my MSc and then I ask info. Maybe I am wrong? Any suggestions?

  • This is not a real duplicate, but I think all parts of this question (and there are many) have been discussed here already.
