About the Project

PhD study in Astronomy covers a theoretical and observational research, analysing the optically variable objects like accreting binary stars, extreme horizontal branch star and active galactic nuclei, as well as the high energy astrophysics, multiwavelength astronomy, radio astronomy, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology.

Astronomical Observatory of the Jagiellonian University participates in ESO, has access to the SALT optical telescope, collaborates in HESS and CTA projects (gamma-ray astrophysics) as well as in the network of LOFAR radio telescopes array, also participate in the VIRGO gravitational waves detector. Our researches use also several world class Earth bound radio (VLA, 100m Effelsberg) and space (Chandra, XMM, Fermi) observatories.

Studying and working with our scientists guarantees a high rate (2/3 as for the end of 2021) of a PhD graduate who successfully will find Postdoc positions at leading institutions all around the world.
