The Research in Astronomy specialisation is the best option for students who aspire to a career in astronomy, or a related field. In addition, the specialisation offer two more narrowly focussed research streams: a. The Stream Instrumentation enables application-minded students to gain new insights in astronomy by creating advances in instrumentation. A major factor contributing to progress in astronomy is the development of ever more advanced instruments for use on the ground or in space. There is a constant need to improve techniques for higher precision, better sensitivity, and greater spectral coverage. Leiden University and Delft University of Technology collaborate in presenting this unique training program at the crossroads of research and technology. This stream is offered in collaboration with Delft University of Technology. b. The Stream Cosmology targets combines research in astronomy with research in physics. It covers all aspects of modern astrophysical research, but is expected to appeal especially to more theory-minded students. In offering this program, Leiden Observatory collaborates with the internationally renowned Leiden Institute of Physics.
