Introduction

During a solar flare, rare infrared (IR) continuum observations show strong brightenings in the chromosphere, co-spatial and co-temporal with flare hard X-ray footpoints [1].… continue to the full article

Two postdoc positions and one PhD position in ERC project BOSS-WAVES (Belgium)

Applications are invited for one PhD position and two postdoc positions. The positions are within the context of the ERC consolidator grant BOSS-WAVES, with PI Tom Van Doorsselaere.

The ERC consolidator grant BOSS-WAVES aims to perform numerical simulations on the heating of coronal loops by non-linear evolution of transverse waves, leading to forward modelling of observables.… continue to the full article
