Observation Data Analysis” (SEDAL), http://isp.uv.es/sedal.html, under
the direction of Prof. Gustau Camps-Valls.

*** The project and job description

This particular position is focused on learning causal models to explain
complex interactions in essential climate variables and remote sensing
observations, and discover hidden essential drivers and confounding
factors in Climate/Geo Sciences applications.

*** Who

Highly motivated researchers with a PhD degree in computer science,
statistics, machine learning, electrical engineering, physics, or
mathematics are encouraged to apply. All candidates should have a solid
