I'm a PhD student in theoretical computer science in the US. This question contains some great answers on how to get a faculty job in Theoretical CS. I wonder whether there are some significant differences if I will be looking for a position in Europe (in particular, UK and Germany) as opposed to in the US. As a PhD student in the US (who's neither a US nor an EU citizen, if that matters), should I do something differently? Some aspects:
Is there more/less weight placed in UK/Germany on professional services such as journal/conference reviewing?
Is there more/less weight placed in UK/Germany on publishing in journals as opposed to conferences?
Should I try to get to know more professors in UK/Germany through conferences? What about doing an internship/research visit/postdoc in UK/Germany?
Other differences are also very welcome.
