Short term (at least 6 months) self-funded attachments

We are always interested to have exchange faculty members, postdocs or PhD level or Masters level students for short term attachments of at least 6 months to work with us on nice projects and co-publish our collaborative work. We are regretful that we do not however have funding to pay any living expenses and other associated costs. Chinese colleagues for example, can consider applying to CSC or your state government or industries for funding. We regularly have sabbatical professors and visiting professors attached to the lab.
