Two post-doctoral and two senior positions at Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland, are available in the field of extragalactic distance scale.
Biennial meeting of the Araucaria Project took place in Sopot, Poland, on September 13-17, 2021. The theme of the meeting was “Physics behind the primary distance indicators”.
We are happy to welcome dr. Megan Lewis in Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center, Warsaw, Poland.
Among 45 Milky Way Cepheids, investigated in this study, 13 show near-infrared excess, which is interpreted as the presence of circumstellar envelopes.
We used a new method of distance determination, based on carbon AGB stars, to derive distances to nine galaxies in the Local and Sculptor Group.
A bold hypothesis that outliers above the period-luminosity relation of Classical Cepheids are binaries brings a discovery of 16 new binary Cepheids with giant companions in the LMC.
Araucaria members explain our scientific work in episode 117 of Polish outreach series about astronomy, Astronarium.
Join the Araucaria Project! We are looking for a postdoc fellow with an observational background, who is eager to work in Warsaw, Poland, on pulsating stars and eclipsing binaries.
After ups and downs of 2020, it’s time for an amazing year 2021. How do we know it’s going to be like this? Because the future with our colleagues, collaborators and friends can only...
So far the Araucaria Project has been focusing on distances in our local Universe, but we dared to make a bold leap much, much farther…
