PhD study in astronomy covers broad range of theoretical and observational research subjects, from analysis of optically variable objects (like accreting binary stars or active galactic nuclei), high energy astrophysics, multiwavelength astronomy, radioastronomy, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology.
Astronomical Observatory of the Jagiellonian University participates in ESO, has access to the SALT optical telescope, collaborates in HESS and CTA projects  (gamma-ray astrophysics) as well as in the network of LOFAR radio telescopes array, also participate in the VIRGO gravitational waves detector. Our researches use also several world class Earth bound radio (VLA, 100m Effelsberg) and space (Chandra, XMM, Fermi) observatories.
