Job and research opportunities:

National Collaborations:

We are part of the "Millenium ALMA Discs (MAD)" nucleus, that focuses on discs and planet formation (funding: Millennium Science Initiative, Chilean Ministry of Economy: Nucleus RC130007).

We are also part of the "Embiggen" collaboration, that studies the role of mergers on the growth of both black holes and galaxies (funding: CONICYT-Chile Anillo ACT1101).

International Collaborations:

We have strong collaborations, including frequent visits in both directions, with members of
