The Research Application Portal is the preferred method for students to express interest in joining faculty research groups. Twice a year, Astronomy faculty post short descriptions of projects available. The descriptions cover desired qualifications, number of positions, support options, and a summary of the science topic and goals. Students rank their top choices and submit a CV, transcript, and one-page narrative of their experience and research skills.

Current call for applications: Projects beginning Summer/Fall 2024

  • Project announcements are available at the link above.
  • Applications are due by Friday, April 12.
  • Decisions should be available by the end of the semester.
  • There will be another application deadline in November 2024, for projects starting in Spring 2025.
