1. Astronomy Jobs & Astrophysics Jobs: Careers In Astronomy & Astrophysics [Physics
Astronomy Astrophysics job listings and career information from Physics Today, your Astronomy Astrophysics resource for career opportunities.
The two terms are generally linked when naming scientific journals covering the subject and graduate science departments because most professional astronomers have graduate degrees in physics. As a result we include astronomy jobs and astrophysics jobs in one category and have a separate category for space physics jobs . The discovery that the universe is expanding was an astronomical advance, that piqued interest in astronomy and astrophysics careers worldwide. The theoretical equation relating the speed of a star with its redshift is an achievement atributed to career astrophysicists. Likewise, radio astronomy was responsible for the discovery of cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR), but astrophysics showed the connection between CMBR and the Big Bang. In 1000 BC, using visible light, Chinese astronomers measured the difference between the location of the sun on the shortest day and the longest day to measure the tilt of Earth's rotational axis. So the overlap of careers in astronomy and astrophysics is quite prevalent. In addition to all of the electromagnetic spectrum, career astronomers now use neutrinos from the Sun and supernovae with detectors placed underground. There are also interferometers that respond to gravitational radiation instead of light, with arms that are 4 km long, to detect the gravity waves of general relativity. There are a great many amateur astronomers and societies. A common activity is called star hopping, which involves locating faint stars, galaxies, and other celestial objects with the help of star charts and bright stars. Amateur astronomers often contribute to the lifework of career astronomers by monitoring the changes in brightness of variable stars, tracking asteroids, discovering comets, and observing occultations.

    Astrophysicists at University of Rochester are working on answering questions about the formation, evolution, and deaths of stars, planetary systems, black holes, and galaxies. The astrophysics group is working on improving our understanding of these astrophysical phenomena using observations with modern astronomical telescopes, developing instrumentation and detector arrays for more powerful future observatories, and improving our theoretical understanding both analytically and through computer simulations. These advances have impacted the fundamental studies of the origins, dynamics, and emission for all scales of astrophysical phenomena from large scale structure in the universe, to galaxies, to stars and planetary systems. Department faculty conduct research in astrophysics that embraces both the development of astronomical technology and the interpretation of its results. Profs.

Presentation UCSC is one of the world's leading centers for both observational and theoretical research in astronomy and astrophysics. The department includes twenty-two faculty members, whose research interests range from the Solar System and the Milky Way to the most distant galaxies in the Universe and the most fundamental questions of cosmology. There are typically over a dozen postdoctoral researchers in residence, as well as a dedicated and skilled technical staff and a steady stream of visiting scientists. The UCSC department was recently ranked first in the country in research impact, based on citation studies. UCSC is also a leader in astrophysics education. The department currently enrolls about twenty-five students working towards the Ph.D. degree. Graduate students benefit from the low student-faculty ratio in the department and extensive research opportunities, as well as course offerings that cover both theoretical and observational aspects of astronomy. UCSC alumni hold positions at leading universities and research institutes around the world. The department offers an undergraduate minor in Astrophysics, and collaborates with the Physics department to offer an undergraduate major in Astrophysics.

Black holes, gravitational lenses, the Big Bang, dark matter, bubbles in spacetime: a science-fiction author couldn't have coined more redolent terms. They aren't from the realms of fantasy, however, but from the jargon that is the very stuff of science. Behind them lie discoveries that are changing our conception of the universe. They demonstrate that the cosmos is a much more diverse and extravagant place than previous generations might have dreamt of. We are living in a 'golden age' of astronomy and astrophysics - an age characterized by the unique and novel interplay of theoretical ideas, precision observation and technological potential. New challenges await scientists as a result.
The fields of astronomy and astrophysics incorporate planetology, stellar astronomy, galactic and extra-galactic astronomy as well as cosmology. Scientists – behind their desks, in front of computers and at their telescopes – are striving to comprehend the differing states of matter as well as the physical processes within our solar system, the Milky Way and across the entire universe. The direction and long-term development of astronomy and astrophysics research is governed by a set of all-inclusive yet fundamental questions.

You Be the Astrophysicist!
Many times, the best way to learn about something is to do it. We think the best way to learn about what an astrophysicist does would be to spend a day (or two or three) in the shoes of one. But since we don't have room for everyone who visits our web site to visit our lab, we've tried to do the next best thing. In these web pages, you will be given a real problem in astronomy which you solve by traveling through web pages, exploring different options and learning many different things along the way. Science is a process of inquiry. Scientists propose hypotheses and test them with experiments. In these pages you will begin with several options for experiments that may lead to the answer you are seeking. Scientists go down many paths that turn out to be dead ends. In these pages, you will encounter some dead ends, too. But often a scientist learns much from a "dead end". You will find that is true here as well. As you travel through the pages in the site to answer the question you are given, you will have the chance to read about relevant concepts in astronomy and test your skills with interactive quizzes. You should take the time to take the interactive quizzes. For each one that you successfully complete, you will be given a record at the end of skills and concepts you have learned. You will have the opportunity to take different paths and to try different techniques. Different paths are indicated by buttons as well as descriptions. Some buttons you will encounter (and what you will find there) include:

Evidence of Stellar Cannibalism
Using Chandra X-Ray Observatory, there is recent evidence that a star named BP Piscium has engulfed its companion. "BP Psc shows us that stars like our Sun may live quietly for billions of years," said co-author David Rodriguez from UCLA, "but when they go, they just might take a star or planet or two with them."
