  The Stellar Astrophysics Group was created in the 1970s by Academician Runqian Huang. After over 30 years of development, the group has made significant breakthroughs in unconserved binary evolution theory, stellar wind shock theory, the effects of convective overshooting on stellar evolution, stellar evolution, formation of irregular objects, the period-luminosity relation of red supergiants, and the structure of the solar convective zone, among others. 

  The group currently employs 8 full-time personnel (1 Academician, 1 Professor, 1 Associate Professor, and 5 Research Assistants). Current main research interests include: the effects of magnetic fields and spin on stellar evolution, binary revolution and accretion disk magnetic fields, perturbation theory and its implementation on stellar structural evolution, interaction between stars and their planetary systems and planetary atmospheres, solar and stellar seismology (including red giants, white dwarfs, and sdBs), etc. 

  Young scientists are welcome to apply for graduate and postdoctoral positions within the group all year round.
