A more senior person hosts a more junior person and provides opportunity and mentoring:
Senior faculty/staff could offer projects for junior faculty/staff
The project should help the seniors as they would delegate some work, and help the juniors as they gain experience. There could be projects where no travel is required.
Any faculty, but especially junior faculty/postdocs , could offer projects for graduate students
The junior faculty gain experience in guiding people, planing and mentoring. The graduate students learn something in a new research environment. The length of the exchange should be between 3 and 9 months.
Graduate students could offer projects for under-graduate students. [the RISE model]
The graduate students gain experience in guiding people, planing and mentoring. The under-graduate students learn something in a research environment. The lengths of the exchange should be between 8 and 15 weeks.
Under-graduate students [with help from above] could offer projects for high-school students. It is very good for the students to think about how to teach 15 to 18 years old.
Researchers at MPI welcome visitors at all levels, as long as they are more than 18 years old and have valid papers. The best experience is normally obtained in a one-on-one situation.
