Students will work on individual research projects with Cornell faculty and research staff on a wide range of topics in planetary science, solar system exploration, astrobiology, exoplanets, radio, infrared and radar astronomy, and related theoretical topics as well as astronomical instrumentation. Students interested in computer science and engineering are also encouraged to apply.
In addition to conducting individual research projects, students will also participate in a series of group activities including lectures, roundtables and workshops. Students will also participate in a geology tour of the Finger Lakes area and a trip to New York City to the American Museum of Natural History.
The Department of Astronomy is one of the leading centers for astronomical research in the world. The department places strong emphasis on the participation of students in ongoing research projects and strives to foster an interdisciplinary approach to solving astronomical problems by maintaining strong ties with other departments. Many undergraduate and graduate alumni of Cornell astronomy have become leaders in the field.
