The Astronomy Nucleus at Universidad Diego Portales, formed in 2013, is part of the Faculty of Engineering and Science and performs research in areas ranging from protoplanetary disks and extrasolar planets to stars, the Milky Way and supernovae, active galactic nuclei, and high redshift galaxies. The group has a strong focus on observational astronomy, performing observations at X-ray, optical, infrared, and submillimiter/radio wavelengths. Its research programs utilize the world-class telescopes located in the north of Chile as well as space-based observatories.

As a growing group, we welcome ambitious scientists, regardless of their gender, background, nationality, beliefs or age, to contact us for possible opportunities to join us.
