When asking for an opportunity to do a PhD with a professor at a US university, he replied:
Excellent background. Unfortunately, I do not have funding to support new students. Good luck!
Now I want to tell him:
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please keep me in mind if a funded position opens up in the future.
and I want to add that if there is any other professors that he can introduce to me in order to ask them for a PhD position. What should I say?
