I am accepted to a PhD program in engineering in the US with 1st year TA-ship as funding.
I have contacted several professor, and eventually, there is this one assistant professor (Dr. A) who want to accept me in his lab. I provided my research plan to him before he finally wants me in his team. His research is cool and I think I will be okay with that.
(Un)fortunately, the department just recruit a new assistant professor (Dr. B), which research topic is in my top priority. I love his research to the moon and back!
What do you think I should do if I want to work with Dr. B?
Until now, I have several choices that I probably take:
- Stay with Dr. A :/ (I hope, there is another better solution)
- Tell Dr. A that I want to move to another lab (I don't know what/how to write to him, though)
- Ask Dr. B as my co-advisor (for now, I believe that I can intertwine both professors research, although I am not sure how to convince Dr. A with this idea)
Any suggestion/comment will be helpful :)
