The Astrophysics Group of UCL's Department of Physics & Astronomy is one of the largest in the UK. Our research areas cover massive stars, star formation, interstellar and circumstellar processes, astrochemistry, cosmology, galaxy formation and evolution, extra-solar planets, atmospheric physics and instrumentation. Our main research topics are listed below.
Research Fellowships - We are keen to support a limited number of strong candidates in applying for Research Fellowships.
Group Publications - Here you'll find links to a huge range of publications from across the group.
The UCL Cosmology Group has a wide range of interests, spanning from the basic properties and evolution of the large scale structure in the Universe all the way back to the initial fluctuations that seeded this structure.
The Cosmoparticle Initiative is a five-year programme within the Department of Physics and Astronomy (P&A), linking the P&A Astrophysics and High Energy Physics (HEP) groups with the Mullard Space Science Laboratory Cosmology group.
Our research includes star formation in our own and other galaxies, the astrophysics of gas and dust in nebular and circumstellar environments and studies of the properties of massive and evolved stars.
