PhD in Astronomy & Astrophysics at MSSL, UCL
MSSL recruits several PhD students annually. The MSSL-UCL Astrophysics group welcomes applications from enthusiastic students. How to apply can be found here. We offer a variety of topics in astronomy and astrophysics, including compact objects (such as Black Hole, AGN, Neutron Star, GRB), galaxy formation and evolution, cosmology and computational astrophysics.
