Research Interests

The long-term build-up to CMEs, the chirality and helicity of solar features individually and collectively; formation of filament channels filaments, filament cavities; the eruption of filaments and prominences, CME initiation and propagation, the source and evolution of solar magnetic fields of all scales. Analysis of multiple wavelengths of data from ground-based and space-based observatories, especially the Dutch Open Telescope (DOT), SOHO, STEREO, and SDO

Candidates' Preferred Background

experience in observing and instrumentation and/or analyzing magnetic field data, filtergram and or spectral data on filaments, prominences, CMEs and other transient events such as surges, spicules and sigmoids; strong programming and/or computing (IDL, solarsoft, Unix) and writing skills; team player but also ability to work independently
