He has an endless stream of free postdocs from colleagues at a particular foreign university. That University pays the salary of these postdocs, some of whom are physicians getting into research, others are clinicians in other disciplines. They are as a group very good, very hardworking, and stay for 1-2 years. He has on average 1-2 a year, and never less than 3 at a time. They are busy reworking his old data. This guy hasn’t done an experiment in 5 years (despite sinking nearly 1 * 10^6 $$ of dept funds into his lab when he became chair).
I suggested that he might consider discussing with our junior colleagues (in the same subdiscipline) whether a free postdoc might be helpful to them. He got all huffy and said “if I shared these postdocs, I would have to stop publishing because my job as chair is so demanding”. This falls into the basket of knowing what you own. He doesn’t.
