Education

Our radio telescopes can see invisible and hidden activities across the Universe and have solved some of the greatest mysteries of our Cosmos. We want to share our knowledge by supporting young and established scientists in collaborative research programs, mentor undergraduates in their research projects, enable student master projects and supervise students in obtaining their Ph.D. in astronomy. Explore what radio astronomy has in store for you.

PhD Opportunities

Students interested in obtaining a PhD in astronomy can do so under the supervision of ASTRON staff members.

Summer Research Programme

The programme enables advanced undergraduate or graduate students in astronomy from around the world to carry out a summer research project.

Master Students

Students of both Dutch and non-Dutch universities can do a master project at ASTRON under the supervision of our staff.

Female Visitor Programme

As part of our commitment to equality and diversity, ASTRON and JIVE offer a visitor programme to young or established female scientists.

What is Radio Astronomy?

Radio astronomy: a part of astronomy that studies the celestial objects by "capturing" the light that they emit.

What do Radio Astronomers see?

Radio astronomers can look at different elements on different wavelengths. If they study the same object using different wavelengths, they will obtain different images.
