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.
