Scientific positions: Senior Researcher, Researcher, Postdoctoral Fellow, Graduate student or Research assistant in Computational Neuroscience within the BRADY project - Ref. No. 2024/9

Scientific positions are available in the Complex Networks and Brain Dynamics group (COBRA) at the Institute of Computer Science, Prague (Czech Republic). These positions are centered in the Research Work Package 1 of a larger, interdisciplinary consortium established for the OPJAK BRADY project. The relevant RWP1 aims to establish a family of generative models of graded complexity capturing brain dynamics that would:

  • Approximate spatial patterns observed in resting state neuroimaging, including topology and topography of functional connectivity
  • Approximate temporal brain dynamics, including activity fluctuations, connectivity dynamics, and information flow
  • Provide an internally consistent unified account of electrophysiological and fMRI data, linking to biologically interpretable latent variables and structural connectivity
  • Allow predicting the effect of external stimulation, such as complex sensory and cognitive tasks, electric of magnetic stimulation, or pharmacological intervention
  • Allow capturing the key axes of inter-subject variability, linking it to psychometric data
  • Ultimately allow characterizing and predicting the trajectory of deviation from healthy brain dynamics in a range of psychiatric and neurological diseases
