In addition to lecturers, the group currently includes nine postdoctoral researchers and six doctoral students. The Department of Astronomy offers opportunities to broaden your horizons whether you are a new student or active researcher, offering a high standard of teaching, and access to the finest telescope sites available in the world.
We are proud of our group that was founded by one of the first Chilean astronomers to have obtained a Ph.D. in Astronomy in a Chilean institution (Dr. Ronald Mennickent).
