ICG and the University of Portsmouth hold Athena SWAN bronze awards, which
shows our commitment to introducing organisational and cultural practices
that promote gender equality in science and create a better working
environment for men and women.
The ICG consists of 13 academic staff, 20 postdoctoral researchers, more
than 20 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme.
ICG is a member of several major astronomical surveys (Sloan Digital
Sky Survey, Dark Energy Survey, Large Synpotic Survey Telescope, Dark
Energy Spectroscopic Instrument) with major involvement in ESA's Euclid
satellite mission and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).
The University of Portsmouth is a member of the South-East Physics
Network (SEPnet) and hosts the 3704-core SCIAMA supercomputer. More
