Divulgação de bolsas de doutorado acadêmico industrial

Eu gostaria de pedir a gentileza dos senhores para divulgarem as duas oportunidades de bolsas de doutorado acadêmico industrial (DAI), recentemente aprovadas para serem implementadas no Programa de Pós-Graduação de Engenharia Eletrônica e Computação (PG/EEC) do ITA.

Daremos preferência aos candidatos que têm condições de iniciar o doutorado já no primeiro semestre de 2019.

Como tratam-se de vagas DAI, os temas de pesquisa já estão fechados com a empresa parceira do projeto, neste caso a empresa IACIT (http://www.iacit.com.br/en)

Uma das vagas é na área de processamento digital de sinais. O doutorando desenvolverá a tese no tema sobre algoritmos de detecção de alvos para imagens de Radar Além do Horizonte do tipo HFSW. E a outra vaga é na área de processamento de imagem em tempo real para classificação e identificação de alvos de radar utilizando inteligência artificial.

Professores orientadores: Prof. Osamu Saotome e Prof. Renato Machado

Um pouco mais de informação sobre o programa DAI e modelo de implementação da bolsa:


Programa DAI
O Programa Doutoramento Acadêmico Industrial - DAI é uma parceria entre o ITA e o CNPq para estimular a pesquisa aplicada, baseada nos seguintes pilares:
i) Ação do CNPq para estimular que desafios tecnológicos sejam assuntos de pesquisa aplicada, desenvolvido em conjunto pela acadêmica e a empresa.
ii) Ferramenta de apoio para que a empresa intensifique seu interesse em P&D e para que haja uma natural migração do pesquisador formado e fixado nas universidades para atuar na empresa, como acontece nos países que possuem tradição em inovação e tecnologias de alto valor agregado.
iii) Indústria complementa bolsas de doutorado do CNPq para que alunos desenvolvam projetos relacionados a desenvolvimentos tecnológicos e científicos de seu interesse. O tema da tese será proposto pela empresa e os alunos são matriculados nos programas já existentes na instituição.
 
As bolsas destinam-se a alunos em dedicação exclusiva ao programa de doutorado, seguindo as mesmas regras reguladoras das bolsas de doutorado do CNPq.

 

Modelo de Implementação 
Todas as propostas selecionadas, deverão seguir o modelo descrito no presente item. A proposição do tema é de iniciativa da empresa; contudo, deve-se ajustar um plano de trabalho em comum acordo com o orientador acadêmico, que deve ser um professor credenciado como Membro Permanente em um dos Programas de Pós-graduação do ITA. 
 
A empresa deve indicar um supervisor dentro do seu quadro de funcionários que dividirá com o orientador acadêmico a tarefa de orientação do aluno. Em caso deste supervisor possuir o título de doutor e cumprir com os critérios de credenciamento do programa que o aluno estiver matriculado, ele poderá figurar formalmente como coorientador da tese. As bolsas disponibilizadas para o DAI são de 48 meses, seguindo o padrão das bolsas de doutorado do CNPq; portanto a plano de trabalho deve ser condizente com este período. 
 
Os meios para realização da pesquisa devem ser acordados entre a empresa e o orientador acadêmico, tendo em vista a infraestrutura disponível no ITA, na empresa, ou outras formas de apoio. Tais meios devem ser explicitados na proposta. O projeto de pesquisa deve ser condizente com as expectativas de uma tese de doutorado, ou seja, que apresente ineditismo e relevância científica ou tecnológica. Deseja-se que este tenha uma abordagem de inovação e aplicação; contudo, a proposta não pode ser caracterizada como uma consultoria ou associada a entrega de serviço ou produto. As bolsas DAI terão o mesmo valor das bolsas de doutorado dos Programas de acordo com a tabela vigente do CNPq. 
 
Complementação da bolsa
A complementação da bolsa DAI pela empresa será de forma escalonada conforme o ano do projeto, em porcentagem ao valor da bolsa paga pelo CNPq, a saber: Primeiro ano: 25% do valor da bolsa do CNPq Segundo ano: 50% do valor da bolsa do CNPq Terceiro ano: 75% do valor da bolsa do CNPq Quarto ano: 100% do valor da bolsa do CNPq 
 
Adicionalmente, a empresa deverá desembolsar o valor de R$12.000,00 por ano como reserva técnica para desenvolvimento do trabalho. 
 
O recurso será utilizado para compra de material de consumo, serviços de manutenção de equipamentos e custeio de passagens, diárias e taxas de inscrição para participação em eventos científicos nacionais e internacionais. 
 
Os bolsistas devem enviar anualmente um relatório sobre as suas atividades e progressos para Pró-reitoria de Pós-graduação para avaliação do andamento do projeto, em adição às obrigações exigidas pelo próprio CNPq. 
 
Documentos para os candidatos
Os candidatos devem enviar os seguintes documentos para os professores Renato Machado e Osamu Saotome ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

UMBC seeks a chair who will articulate the Department’s vision, inspire its constituencies, and align department plans and priorities with COEIT’s and UMBC’s strategic priorities. UMBC believes that the next Chair will need to engage successfully with the following specific challenges:

 
Lead the Department in Solidifying its Identity and Creating a Vision for the Future
 

The Chair will inspire the next phase of Information Systems by leading the Department in an inclusive strategic planning process that fully engages stakeholders across the Department, College, and UMBC. The aim is to build upon the Department’s successes and strengths, reinforce its identity as a center for multi-disciplinary study, and continue to move the Department to become one of the preeminent Information Systems program in the country. The Department has played an important role at UMBC and in the region’s community, industry, and economy, and as such, the Chair will also be responsible for articulating the identity, vision, and strengths across UMBC and externally.
 
Engage Stakeholders
 

The Chair will be a key leader in helping shape the potential of the College and will represent the Department externally to current and prospective partners, especially the business community and recruiters. UMBC has the largest cooperative education program in Maryland, and Information Systems students participate in this program in greater numbers than any other  major on campus. With the Baltimore/Washington corridor becoming one of the largest centers for technology employment, the IS department is poised to continue its growth as a research center and connect well-trained students to thousands of new jobs. By one estimate, there are as many as 50,000 technology job openings in the region, a unique opportunity to deepen the Department’s regional impact.

 
Expand the Department’s Collaborative work Across Disciplines
 

The next Chair will work collaboratively across the College and UMBC to maintain and enhance the broad range of current collaborations, as well as to identify and forge new opportunities, especially in growing the Department’s research footprint. UMBC’s size and affinity for interdisciplinary efforts empower the Chair to be innovative and proactive in such endeavors. There are several active examples of the type of collaboration that UMBC would like to replicate, including research relationships with the Erickson School (https://erickson.umbc.edu), Imaging Research           Center                     (https://www.irc.umbc.edu),                     the                 Hilltop                          Institute (https://www.hilltopinstitute.org), the professional schools of the University of  Maryland Baltimore (https://www.umaryland.edu), the National Federation of the Blind (https://nfb.org), and the Digital Harbor Foundation (https://www.digitalharbor.org).

 
Grow the Faculty through Hiring and Retention Efforts

To support continuously growing enrollments, the Chair will lead efforts to recruit, retain, and develop outstanding faculty. With the increasing number of students entering both undergraduate and graduate programs, it is important that the next chair create a strategy to increase faculty capacity for teaching. Additionally, the next Chair has the opportunity to increase the reputation of the department by bringing in well-respected faculty to lead cutting-edge research funded by a wide range of institutions and government entities. It is expected that the Chair will oversee the hiring of faculty members on an annual basis to meet the growing demand from students and employers for the foreseeable future, in addition to creating conditions for retaining outstanding faculty.

 
Leverage Diversity and the Power of Students

The Department of Information Systems is home to one of the most diverse student populations on campus, and its students are true problem solvers and ideal employees for public and private sector organizations. It is imperative that the Chair not only celebrate the diversity and strength of Information Systems students but also advocate on their behalf to create opportunities for them, the Department, and UMBC. The department has had a long history of success in their students earning employment after graduation. Most recently, 89% of undergraduate and 93% of graduate students are employed at the time of graduation. The new Chair is charged to continue that post-graduation employment success while broadening relationships with local and national partners.
