    Put together/form/create a research group

    Hello,

    Which one is more idiomatic to use?

    A-"His ambition is putting together/forming/creating a research group to work in the field of design optimization."
    B-"He set his career goal to put together/form/create/ have a research group working in this field, in the future.


    Thanks.

    Re: Put together/form/create a research group

    I don't like either of them. The first one would work for me with "to put together", "to form" or "to create".
