I'm Indian by origin, I finished my academic studies (doctorate in mathematics) in the US, and worked in academia for two years in France. I speak little French and definitely willing to improve. Currently I'm in the US working as an academic (postdoctoral) researcher mathematical modeling of medical imaging or medical image computing. I'm hoping to move to Brussels with a permanent industrial or academic position, but keeping my options also open to Switzerland and France too.
I think the jobs I'll apply to might fall in the "shortage jobs" category. I wonder if it's easier to get a permit in this category? The EU BLue Card has a set minimum on the salary, but is this relaxable if your job falls into the shortage category? This happens in Germany and Luxembourg, hence I ask.
Thank you for your replies!
