Research projects are available on a variety of topics in the cutting edge of
cosmology and the theory of galaxy formation.
These projects can be offered to good students, for Ph.D., M.Sc., or undergraduate
The type of work ranges from analytic work, through numerical analysis,
to developing and running challenging hydro-cosmological simulations.
The projects could be theoretical, involving cosmological simulations,
or related to observational data.
The current projects focus on open issues concerning the most active phase of
galaxy formation during the first few billion years of cosmological evolution,
which is one of the most active fields of modern astrophysical research.
The research program is part of an international team work aimed at developing
a new theoretical understanding of the origin of galaxies
and the large-scale structure in the universe. Details are to be provided
to interested students based on their personal interests and abilities, and
in accordance with the current open issues in our research program.
