Professor P. Oprocha is looking to fill a 2-year postdoctoral position in his research team, funded by National Science Center (NCN Poland) grant entitled "Entropy, shadowing and attractors" (2020-2024). 

Salary: 120.000 PLN/year (gross), including Health Insurance (depending on several variables the net salary would be approx. 80.000 PLN/year). 

Description: The position carries no teaching duties. The candidate will work on problems related to the goals of the project, including (but not limited to) the following areas: 1) interplay between topological dynamics and ergodic theory, measures of complexity (e.g. topological entropy), 2) inverse limits in dynamics, 3) cantor set dynamics, including but not limited to symbolic dynamics, 4) tracing of approximate trajectories (shadowing property, specification property), 5) continua as attractors in 2-dim spaces. He/she will be expected to work effectively within the project team, to have the ability to develop and apply new concepts, write scientific papers, and present their results at meetings and conferences abroad. The position comes with a travel funding of 13.000PLN/year, and additional travel funding opportunities are expected during the stay. After the 24-month period it is expected that there may be further employment opportunities at AGH, depending on the results obtained.
