I'm an American, and I’m considering – sometime in the future – getting a PhD in computer science. My impression is that Europe is a lovely place, both in general and because of its sane work culture. If I decide I would like to become a professor in Europe, what steps should I take?
- Does one need to get a PhD from Europe, rather than from the U.S., to be a professor there?
- If not, does a PhD from the UK qualify one to be a professor in continental Europe?
- Are classes in continental Europe generally taught in English?
- If not, does one need to be a native speaker to teach them?
