Postdoc grants and visitor positions at UFAL

Postdoc grants

The FAPEAL (the Foundation for State of Alagoas Research), in
partnership with CNPq, has opened a public call of 20 grants for the state of Alagoas (Brazil), each lasting up to three years. The benefits are:

  •  Set up aid (= 2 grants)
  • Shift aid (national exchanges)
  • Research (from R$20,000 to R$25,000)

The scholarship amount depends on the time T after PhD thesis defense:

  • Category A (10 years ≤ T): R $ 6,200
  • Category B (5 years ≤ T ≤ 10 years): R$5,200
  • Category C (0 ≤ T ≤ 5 years): R$4,200

If the grant is made effective in UFAL after at least 6 months, the
amount will be 50% of the total.

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is October 15, 2015.


Visitor positions

It is also announced an open call for 2-3 positions of visiting professors at UFAL.
The selection process will be simplified, requiring only to send a CVita and a research project.

Researchers in UFAL are very interested in people committed to research
and with availability in tutoring master and doctoral levels in one of the areas
of our program (Differential Geometry, Dynamical Systems, Analysis and Algebra).

Jornada informativa JRC

El día 7 de octubre de 2015 se celebrará en el MINECO una jornada informativa nacional sobre “Actividades y Oportunidades de Colaboración con el Joint Research Centre (JRC)”. 

El JRC es el servicio de investigación de la Comisión Europea para apoyo a sus políticas, es independiente de los EEMM y PA. Tiene conexiones con todas las DG de la Comisión y trabaja en varias áreas científicas. Aborda retos fundamentales que se plantean a la sociedad al tiempo que estimula la innovación mediante el desarrollo de nuevos métodos, herramientas y normas. A su vez, el  JRC comparte sus conocimientos técnicos con los Estados miembros, la comunidad científica y otros socios internacionales.

El objetivo de la jornada es que en nuestra comunidad investigadora/tecnológica aumente el conocimiento sobre las actividades del JRC y sus posibilidades de colaboración de tipo bilateral, en consorcios para presentación de propuestas en H2020, utilización de sus infraestructuras, actividades de formación, organización de eventos, etc.

Conviene colaborar con investigadores del JRC porque investigan para dar servicio a las políticas de la Unión y conocen las estrategias que se implementarán a través de las convocatorias de H2020. Las posibilidades de colaboración incluyen investigaciones conjuntas, publicaciones conjuntas, intercambio de datos e información, intercambios de personal y realización de eventos y conferencias conjuntas. El acceso a las infraestructuras de alto nivel se fomenta en el marco de las actividades del JRC y las necesidades de otros agentes de Estados Miembros y del resto del mundo. El Foro Europeo para la Ciencia y la Industria es una buena oportunidad para colaborar con el JRC a la vez que con la industria en el ámbito europeo. Las oportunidades de  acceso para desarrollar una labor científica en el JRC son muchas y conviene explorarlas, incluyendo estancias cortas, cursos de formación, proyectos de doctorado…

Las áreas científicas en las que desarrolla sus actividades comprenden: Agricultura y seguridad alimentaria; Unión Económica y Monetaria; Energía y transporte; Medio ambiente y cambio climático; Salud y protección del consumidor; Sociedad de la información; Innovación y crecimiento; Protección y seguridad nuclear; Seguridad y protección no nucleares; Normas-estándares.

Aquellos interesados en asistir a la jornada, deben registrarse a través del enlace que aparece en la Agenda siguiente antes del 2 de octubre.

Técnicas Estadísticas de Data Mining con R

Se anuncia la celebración del curso de “Técnicas Estadísticas de Data Mining con R” que se impartirá en el Instituto IMDEA Alimentación en Madrid los días 14, 15, 16 y 17 de diciembre de 2015.

En este curso se han reunido una serie de técnicas procedentes de distintos campos como el análisis multivariante, el aprendizaje estadístico, la inteligencia artificial y técnicas de machine learning.

Se han seleccionado las técnicas predictivas más importantes y cuyo uso está más extendido: Regresión Lineal y Logística, Métodos Penalizados (LASSO, Ridge), Mínimos Cuadrados Parciales (PLS), métodos basados en Árboles (CART), Support Vector Machines (SVM), Redes Neuronales, Random Forest, Bagging, Boosting.

El curso incluye los aspectos más importantes para la construcción de modelos predictivos: preprocesamiento y descripción básica de los datos, optimización de los parámetros involucrados en cada una de las técnicas, evaluación de la capacidad predictiva de los modelos mediante técnicas de remuestreo (validación cruzada y bootstrapping), selección de variables que van a formar parte del modelo, comportamiento de cada técnica en problemas de alta dimensión, etc.

Este curso forma parte, como Módulo 7, del programa de formación continua en “Estadística Aplicada con R” que se va a impartir en Madrid en 2015 de forma presencial organizado conjuntamente por la Unidad de Bioestadística del Instituto IMDEA Alimentación y la Facultad de Ciencias de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM)
