Research Opportunities

I always welcome applications from talented students with an interest towards exploring theoretical and computational astrophysics at the MSc or PhD level. Research topics range from galactic modelling and dynamics to the nature of dark matter and involve a mix of theory and numerical analysis.

Students are encouraged to apply prior to the Feb 15 departmental deadline though applications are always considered until all research positions are filled. All students accepted into the physics program at Queen's are guaranteed full funding for two years for an MSc or four years for a PhD.

Please contact me (widrow@astro.queensu.ca) if you have any questions.
