Scholarship Program for Postgraduate Study in Japan

The Hitachi Scholarship provides an excellent opportunity for Southeast Asian universities to send faculty members, who wish to continue teaching and research at their universities after graduation, to Japan as part of their human development programs. Recipients of this award are invited to attend Japanese public and private graduate schools that have close relationships with Southeast Asian universities. The Scholarship provides financial support and personal assistance and consultation.

Eligibility for the program is limited to faculty members up to the age of 30 for masters degree candidates or 35 for Ph. D. degree candidates in the fields of scince and technology and each applicant must be recommended by a senior staff at their home university as a potential candidate for international reasearch collaboration after graduation. Each grantee receives full financial support to study Japanese for six months after arrival. The Foundation funds tour programs every year to visit various location in the fields of industry, science technology, research, culture, history, society and nature so that the grantees’ experience and understanding during their stay in Japan will not be limited to one campus.

PhD Candidates in Marine Machinery Controls Operations 2011

The maritime offshore cluster operates globally and is highly innovative and adaptive. Every new ship is more or less a prototype designed for unique advanced operations. Environmental demands, subsea operations at several thousand meters depth, rough climate challenges and the installation of wind turbines are examples of operations that continuously demands new solutions. The close cooperation between Aalesund University College (AAUC), the companies in the region and NTNU/MARINTEK in Trondheim, provide the access to innovative and challenging laboratory facilities, where main focus is on applied research activities. In this academic and industrial environment you will find numerous interesting and challenging research objectives. Aalesund University College can offer PhD Candidate positions in the following fields:

• Environmental friendly (green) shipping (11-05ITN)

Existing propulsion machinery must be optimized and new novel systems must be developed to meet future requirements. The main objective of this research is to adapt advanced energy and environmental technology from other fields, to be applied onboard maritime installations.

• Machinery systems – modeling, simulation and optimization (11-10ITN)

Machinery systems onboard advanced off-shore vessels have become more and more complex and integrated, increasing the need for tools and methods to analyze and optimize. The main objective of this research is to develop knowledge, methods and tools for effective modeling and analysis.

• Human factors – man/machine interactions (11-09ITN)

As machines get more complex, operations more demanding, and need for risk reduction, we need to study and develop better and safer man/machine interaction. The main objective of this research is to develop knowledge and methods to be used in effective design of operator interfaces such as ship bridge design.

• Ship behavior under real operational loads and conditions (11-08ITN)

Ship behavior under normal conditions, are well studied. However, the interaction between vessel and external factors such as sub-sea equipment under demanding operations requires new research approach. The main objective of this research is to develop knowledge and methods to analyze ship behavior including external loads and conditions.

• Remote control and monitoring of maritime operations (11-07ITN)
The cost and availability of cheap and advanced instrumentation, microprocessors and data transfer solutions has opened for new possibilities for remote monitoring and control of systems in operation. The main objective of this research is to develop knowledge and methods to design effective remote operated condition monitoring systems including intelligent analysis for effective evaluation, and how to apply this technology to make extended laboratory facilities.

• Complex marine operations management (11-06ITN)

Ships and machines for demanding marine operations are getting more and more complex. Integrated control systems and interacting crews challenges safety. Planning and executing high risk operations challenge a safe and effective management. The objective of this research is to develop knowledge and methods for effective and safe management of complex high risk operations off-shore.
All these research fields are linked together in the overall research programs at AAUC, and will be part of a research team. The research may be both theoretical and experimental, and in close cooperation with local industry partners, NTNU/MARINTEK in Trondheim, and relevant international universities/research centers. The common goal for the vacant positions is to build up research activity over a period of 5 years. The PhD candidates will be part of the Research Centre for Marine Operations in Virtual Environment (MOVE) at AAUC.
