Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics comprises research activities in astronomy and astrophysics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester, the world leading facilities of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, the e-MERLIN/VLBI National Facility and hosts the Square Kilometre Array Organisation. The Jodrell Bank Observatory site also welcomes visitors to the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.
At Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics we study fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, allowing us to probe the Universe at early times and make deductions about fundamental processes in cosmology.
The Atacama Large Millimeter / submillimeter Array (ALMA), the world's largest astronomical project, has been inaugurated in Chile, celebrating ALMA's transition from a construction project to a fully fledged observatory.
e-MERLIN, is now fully operational providing sub-arcsecond and icrojansky radio imaging of the sky. Deadline for cycle-1 proposals is 17th June 2013.
