The Faculty of Informatics of Masaryk University (FI MU) in Brno, Czech Republic, invites applications for one or two Post-doctoral positions in all areas of Computer Science. Brno (see https://brnoregion.com/) is an attractive city for students and young researchers, and often branded as the “Silicon Valley of the Czech Republic” thanks to its innovative ecosystem of universities and start-up as well as scale-up businesses. The Faculty has a strong interest in attracting applications from abroad.
The postdoctoral positions are awarded for one year with an extension to the second year after a review. Gross salary is 61,000 CZK per month which sums to about 30,000 EUR per year. Additional funds of approximately 4,000 EUR per year will be available for travel and material expenses. Preferred start date of the contract is January 2023, but other options can be negotiated without hassle.
Deadline for application: September 4, 2022
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree not older than 4 years at the time of application, from a university outside of the Czech and Slovak Republics.
