Postdoc/Junior researcher positions in Prediction of parameters for energy distribution system project - Ref. No. 2024/10

A junior scientist (postdoc) position is available to join the Department of Complex system, Institute of Computer Science of the Czech Academy of Sciences (ICS CAS) for the project “Neural networks realtime forecasting of variable baseline for the power equipment at HV, LV voltage levels” (TACR reg. No. TK05020142).

This project aims to predict the parameters of the energy distribution system based on knowledge of the evolution of the system in time and other usually time-dependent external variables such as the weather or the situation in the financial energy markets. The main objective is to apply artificial intelligence methods in this area, particularly in the field of deep learning.
