Professor Claude Carignan accepts a Chair in Extragalactic Astrophysics at the University of Cape Town in South Africa

Professor Claude Carignan, from the physics department at the Université de Montréal and member of the CRAQ, accepted to take the direction of the "SKA Chair in Extragalactic Multi-Wavelength Astronomy" at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. This prestigious Chair in radio, infrared and optical astronomy, will allow Prof. Carignan to pursue research on galactic evolution and to use one of the world's largest telescopes, the South African Large Telescope.

Claude Carignan will nevertheless still work with the Université de Montréal since he will be an associate professor and will continue to supervise his two current students while finalizing his instrumentation projects on large low-noise detectors.

The CRAQ congratulates Professor Carignan for the obtention of this chair and wishes him the best for his upcoming research projects.
