I welcome applications from students interested in exploring theoretical
and computational astrophysics at the MSc or PhD level. 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. Research
topics range from galactic modelling and dynamics to the nature of dark matter
and involve a mix of theory and numerical analysis.
I hope to add one or two new students to begin in September, 2011.
Students are encouraged to apply early in 2011 though applications
will be considered until the research positions are filled.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
