2014-12-10:HELCATS post-doc position advertised at IC advertised
Applications are invited for a Research Assistant/Associate position within the Space and Atmospheric Physics Group at Imperial College London. The successful applicant will work with Dr. Jonathan Eastwood and Dr. Bob Forsyth and will contribute to activities funded by the FP7 project HELCATS (HELiospheric Cataloguing, Analysis and Techniques Service). The goal of HELCATS is to use existing heliophysics data sets to improve forecasts of coronal mass ejection arrival times at Earth. More information about HELCATS can be found at http://www.helcats-fp7.eu/index.html. In particular, the post holder will contribute to two work packages (1) assessing the complementary nature of radio measurements of solar wind transients, and (2) verifying the kinematic properties of remotely observed CMEs against in situ spacecraft observations. The post holder will also be expected to support the Department’s teaching activities up to approximately half a day per week during the academic year as appropriate. For more information about space research at Imperial College and Imperial College itself, please visit www.imperial.ac.uk/spat. The position is full-time and is available for up to 20 months from January 2015. The application deadline is 8 January 2015. For further information and to apply for the post go to: https://www4.ad.ic.ac.uk/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?page=/oracle/apps/irc/candidateSelfService/webui/VisVacDispPG&akRegionApplicationId=821&transactionid=1098525467&retainAM=Y&addBreadCrumb=S&p_svid=45130&p_spid=1702179&oapc=7&oas=_Bu6d8iBvo4u2G3iVodRFw..

2014-10-01: HELCATS Announcement Press Release
1 October 2014 – UK scientists have unveiled a new £2.5 million (€3.2 million) project that will improve forecasts of solar storms, including their arrival time and impact on the Earth. The three year project will provide the most comprehensive set of information to date about the Sun’s influence on interplanetary space and the effects space weather can have on the Earth. The project will enable governments to improve their strategies to lessen the potential negative impacts from the Sun...[more]
2014-06-10: Public launch of web site
As part of the HELCATS start-up activities the consortium are happy to announce the launch of the public web site http://www.helcats-fp7.eu. We will be expanding the site over the coming weeks and months and would be happy to have your feedback on how we can improve the information that we provide for you.
2014-05-14: Kick-Off Meeting
On the 14th and 15th of May the HELCATS consortium met together with the EU Project Officer to kick-off the project.
2014-05-01: HELCATS Project Start
We are delighted to announce that the EU FP7 HELCATS project formally started today. The project brings together key European expertise in solar storm observations and modelling to address the important issue of how these potentially hazardous storms can be tracked as they speed out from the Sun.
