Research Fellow/Postdoc positions for the project Interactions and causality in complex systems

A new project funded by the Praemium Academiae awarded to Milan Paluš (RNDr. Milan Paluš, DrSc.) by the Czech Academy of Sciences for the period 2020-2025 is open for applications for positions of research fellows or postdoctoral researchers. The project is oriented to study interactions and causality in nonlinear, multiscale complex systems with extreme events. The primary application fields will be the Earth climate, magnetosphere/ionosphere (space weather) and the human brain.
