The Institute of Physics and Astronomy offers possible PhD projects in a large variety of astrophysical research areas ranging from planetary and stellar science to extragalactic astronomy and cosmology.
The maximum duration of the PhD program is 4 years which are typically reduced to 3 years if the candidates have a masters degree.
We offer scholarships of 7 Million Chilean pesos (approx. $US 11500) per year for our students. Additional funds might be available for very strong candidates.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT) of Chile have decided to promote mutual collaborations in astronomical research between the two countries. To provide support for young astronomers in their early stages of research career, a China-CONICYT Postdoctoral Fellowship program has been initiated since 2013, with four finalists selected and awarded the Fellowship in its first year. The 2014 implementation of this Fellowship will start soon in the form of a call issued by CONICYT. Qualified candidates must have assurance to obtain their Ph.D. degree before the start of the Fellowship (expected by mid-2015). Preferential considerations will be given to those applicants with proposed research activities involving collaborations between the Chinese and Chilean astronomy communities. Potential applicants should check out the web sites www.conicyt.cl and www.cassaca.org for more up-to-date information on this opportunity in the coming months and may contact prospective sponsors accordingly before applying.
Further inquires about this fellowship opportunity can be addressed to Dr. Jiasheng Huang, Chief Scientist of CASSACA (the CAS South America Center for Astronomy) at firstname.lastname@example.org. (PDF: CC_postdoc_ad_2014 ).
More information to come…
According to a new agreement between the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for the advancement of science in developing countries, up to 140 students/scholars from the developing world will be sponsored to travel to China for PhD studies for up to four years.
This CAS-TWAS President’s Fellowship Programme provides students/scholars from developing countries (other than China) an opportunity to pursue PhD degrees at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) or Institutes of CAS around China.
Under the terms of the new CAS-TWAS agreement, travel from their home countries to China will be provided to the fellowship awardees in order to begin the fellowship in China (one trip only per student/scholar). Visa fee will also be covered (once only per student/scholar). Continue reading

China-Chile Postdoctoral Fellowship in Astronomy and Astrophysics 2013
The China-Chile Joint Center for Astronomy (CCJCA) is a new initiative by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and CONICYT of Chile to promote mutual collaborations between the two countries. To provide support for young astronomers in their early stages of research career, a China-CONICYT Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunity will be initiated in 2014. Applications for a temporary implementation of this Fellowship in 2013 are now being solicited by CCJCA with the expectation to start the first round of selection before the 2014 launch. Qualified candidates must have their Ph.D. degree on or before the start of their fellowship, which can be anytime between now and March 2014. All areas of research in astronomy and astrophysics will be considered, but preferential considerations will be given to applicants with proposed research activities involving collaborations between the Chinese and Chilean astronomy communities. Alternatively, we encourage potential applicants to check out some of the on-going research programs that are listed [in this page] and contact the prospective sponsors accordingly. Continue reading
