*BASIC JOB FUNCTION*: The incumbent will be responsible for
conducting and evaluating research on spectropolarimetric
observations of the Sun's atmosphere before, during and after solar

for the acquisition of such data, and the reduction and analysis of
such data using IDL and FORTRAN-based software, some of which will
be developed by the incumbent.
Works independently, and as a member of a NASA Living With a Star
Targeted Research and Technology focused science team, to study
flaring plasma and develop measurement techniques to optimize the
polarization sensitivity of existing ground-based
spectropolarimeters, particularly at the Dunn Solar Telescope. Also
works as a member of the HAO spectropolarimetry team. The ASA
research will naturally be of interest to HAO generally as it
develops the ViSP instrument for the Daniel K. Inoue Solar telescope.
