PhD study in astronomy covers broad range of theoretical and observational
research subjects, from analysis of optically variable objects (both stellar and active galactic nuclei),
high energy astrophysics and accretion disks, radioastronomy, 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, we 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.
