Postdoc/research assistant positions for the project Learning Synchronization Patterns in Multivariate Neural Signals for Prediction of Response to Antidepressants

A new project funded by the Czech Science Foundation awarded to Milan Paluš ( in cooperation with scientists from the Czech National Institute of Mental Health and Vienna University, Faculty of Informatics, for the period 2021-2024 is open for applications for positions of postdoctoral researchers. The project is oriented to mathematical and computational methods for detection, and machine learning-based classification of synchronization and causality in nonlinear multivariate time series. Applications in analysis of EEG describing brain states and their changes in mental disorders (depression), prediction of antidepressant efficacy.
