Students interested in obtaining a PhD in astronomy can do so under the supervision of ASTRON staff members. The students will be officially located at one of the Dutch Universities (Amsterdam, Groningen, Leiden, Nijmegen) but will visit ASTRON regularly. You can contact our astronomy research staff to find out if there are any current openings.

Proud to have worked with an international team of astronomers to create the most sensitive images of the Universe ever taken at low radio frequencies✨. The use of @LOFAR reveals images of Milky Way like galaxies in the most distant parts of the Universe https://bit.ly/3cRUWKE
