Recently I applied for a summer research internship in a lab in South Korea. This was the reply from the prof.
Thank you for contacting me for internship.
You have worked with an excellent scientist, Dr. Manhattan, which draws my attention. With his recommendation letter, I am willing to host your internship in my lab. What you shall study, unless you have something else particularly in mind, will be numerical calculation similar to what is in the attached paper.
What does he mean by "host"? Does it mean funding? How do I go on about asking him politely about it?
