Come to ROB to study EUV brightenings with EUI

Full-time researcher to study EUV brightenings detected by EUI and other instruments onboard Solar Orbiter

The Royal Observatory of Belgium hires a full-time scientific collaborator, who will play a central role in ROB’s research on campfires. The new collaborator will be involved in the detection and characterization of EUV brightenings and the study of their properties as derived from dedicated observation by instruments such as EUI, PHI, SPICE, and AIA, using techniques such as differential emission measure, coronal stereoscopy and spectroscopy. The research will include both case studies of EUV brightenings and statistical studies of their properties. The distribution of their energies is especially interesting as it extends our knowledgebase of the contribution of coronal brightenings to coronal heating. The new collaborator will aid in producing an open catalog of EUV brightenings, which can be consulted/employed by the solar physics community.
