Using survey data on European-born and European-educated researchers who are internationally mobile after their PhD within Europe or to the United States, we find positive reported effects from international mobility on a range of facets, including scientific productivity, research environment and career development. Researchers mobile to the United States consistently report stronger positive effects than their peers who are mobile within the EU. This apparent ‘U.S. premium’, however, is almost entirely due to selection.
