A postdoc position in the Complex Networks and Brain Dynamics group - Ref. No. 22

A postdoc position is available in the Complex Networks and Brain Dynamics group as part of the project "From Biological Neural Networks to Next-Generation Whole-Brain Models", funded by the Czech Academy of Sciences through a Lumina Quaeruntur fellowship. This position is focussed on developing model-based data analysis techniques that combine structural and functional MRI data. The postdoc will be responsible for carrying out the data analysis, and for the development of computational models of whole-brain activity that help refine and explain the relationship between functional and structural brain networks.
