The Center provides exceptional opportunities for graduate students in all areas of astrophysics, cosmology, and gravitation. Students enjoy working in a dynamic and friendly environment which promotes the growth of young scientists to become the leaders of the future. Learn more...

High-school and Undergraduate Students

The group also works with undergraduate students on state-of-the-art research using the world's largest radio telescopes. Learn more...

High-school teachers and students can get involved through the Pulsar Search Collaboratory: contact Dr. Joe Swiggum for details.

Einstein@Home

Another outreach program developed at the Center for Gravitation and Cosmology, and that involves the participation of the public, is Einstein@Home. Volunteers from all around the world sign up their computers to process data from gravitational wave detectors. In this way, people from all around the world can get involved in cutting-edge research. Join in...

Gravitational-wave Poster Set

A set of four posters about the history of gravitational waves, the detectors that search for these waves, and the cataclysmic events that produce them in the depths of the Universe. And, of course, their detection!
