PPGCosmo is an international PhD program on Astrophysics, Cosmology and Gravitation that aims to give PhD students the opportunity to develop a successful international scientific career. The research topics range from theoretical to observational aspects of Astrophysics, Cosmology and Gravitation, including participation in collaborations such as Euclid, J-PAS and DES. PPGCosmo is a Brazilian program consisting of four institutions from Brazil and four institutions outside Brazil.

Four 4-year PhD positions are now available starting in mid August 2017. The student will be supervised by a Professor at a Brazilian institution and co-supervised by a Professor at an institution outside Brazil. For the compulsory postgraduate courses the student will be mainly based in Vitória (Espírito Santo, Brazil). The student will have opportunities to visit the other Brazilian participating institutions and will have to spend one year at the co-supervisor's non-Brazilian institution.
