Finding out whether biology has arisen elsewhere in the Universe has likely been a question as old as humanity itself. At Birmingham we are leading on answering that question thanks to our participation in the only set of telescopes currently able to identify new habitable rocky worlds where they atmosphere can then be probed for evidence of biological processes. We use the SPECULOOS network of telescopes across the world to do this work as well as a telescope located in Antarctica. We also analyse data obtained by NASA’s TESS satellite to complement our analyses.

This project relies on collecting observations in foreign observatories. Students able to travel will be preferred.
