Scientific Program

The Research School is mainly focused in radio and infrared astronomy, but it also incorporates research opportunities at other wavelengths, especially with a multi-band approach, as well as theoretical research in astrophysics.

This will provide students the appreciation and understanding of complementary tools for the interpretation of radio and infrared observations. Research themes are galaxies and active galactic nuclei (AGN), interstellar medium of the Milky Way and external galaxies, astro-chemistry, star formation in the local and the early universe, our Galactic center, and late phases in the evolution of stars.

Research opportunities are offered in the areas:

  • Structure and kinematics of AGN jets
  • Galactic masers: nature and application to astrophysics
  • Intra-day variability
  • Infrared interferometry of disks and jets of young stars
  • Very-Long-Baseline Interferometry development
  • Interstellar matter in galaxies
  • Infrared interferometry of AGN
  • Strong and weak gravitational lensing
  • Galactic and extragalactic magnetic fields
  • High precision astrometry
  • Envelopes of evolved stars
  • Radiative transfer modeling
  • Star formation in the Milky Way and other galaxies
  • Astro-particle physics
  • Super massive binary black holes in AGN
  • Observational cosmology
  • Stellar populations
  • Star clusters
  • Satellite galaxies
  • Galactic dynamics
  • Pulsars and Neutron Stars
  • Experimental gravitational physics
  • Transient radio sky
  • Evolution of massive binaries and their manifestations
