Recently, a graduate position, supervised by an emeritus faculty member has been offered to me. The aforementioned professor is one of the most famous contributors of his field on the planet for over 3 decades, but his age is over 75...
Some people just advise that the old faculty members would not capable of the active research and support of the graduate students and one better tries to inhibit cooperation with them.
The others asserts that the worthy and coherent experience and cumulative knowledge of such people shall be grabbed by graduate students by working with them!!!
I just struggled to contact with his current and former students to know his code of ethics, specifically, but they refrain from answering me.
Does someone have any experience to pass graduate studies under supervision of such aged emeritus faculty members?
