Digital methods applied to radio: a proposal for adaptation and innovation

UFOP is a public university located in Minas Gerais, in the Southeast region of Brazil. With units in the cities of Ouro Preto, Mariana, and João Monlevade, today it has almost 12 thousand undergraduate students, just over two thousand graduate students, and almost 2000 professors. The undergraduate course in Journalism and the Postgraduate Program in Communication are located in Mariana, at the Institute of Applied Social Sciences. The project “Digital methods applied to radio: a proposal for adaptation and innovation” is coordinated by Professor Dr. Debora Cristina Lopez and developed with the Convergence and Journalism Research Group (ConJor). The study's concern is with the development of techniques and methods that allow understanding radio on digital platforms as an object of research and its specificities. In addition, we seek to develop tools and strategies to analyze this object, starting from its reconfigured nature due to the new dynamics of production, circulation, and consumption of audio content. The research is anchored in debates on innovation, radio on digital platforms, the epistemology of communication, and methodologies for analyzing digital objects. We offer, within the scope of this call, a vacancy for visiting researcher, through the Individual Fellowships - IF of Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), intermediated by the Federal University of Ouro Preto. The activities will be developed at UFOP, on the Mariana campus, and supervised by the project coordinator.

Criteria: - Hold a Ph.D.; - Domain of Portuguese, English, or Spanish; - Be interested in radio studies and their interfaces with big data and/or digital methods; - Have availability to live in Ouro Preto or Mariana.

Main duties and tasks: - Develop big data quantitative/qualitative analysis tools; - Adapt and prototype digital analysis tools and methods; - Conduct testing of digital method tools based on the characteristics of the phenomenon observed in the project; - Develop conceptual perspectives of innovation applied to radio on digital platforms;

- Work in interinstitutional partnerships of the project;

- Produce scientific articles for circulation of the content developed in the project;

- Develop scientific communication content linked to the project including press releases, blog

posts and social media content.

Federal University of Ouro Preto

Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto - Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP) is a higher education and research institution located in Minas Gerais State, southeastern Brazil. It was founded on August 21st, 1969, as a consolidation of two significant preexisting institutions:

Escola de Farmácia - School of Pharmacy (1839), the first School of Pharmacy in Latin America, and Escola de Minas - School of Mines (1876), founded by the French mineralogist Henry Gorceix and the first Brazilian institution aimed to teach Mining, Metallurgy, and Geology.

In addition to Escola de Minas and the Escola de Farmácia, UFOP covers all areas of knowledge in 13 academic units, distributed across four campi (located in the cities of Ouro Preto, Mariana, and João Monlevade). The main campus is located in Ouro Preto, a multicultural city with a vast calendar with some of the biggest cultural and artistic events in Brazil. It was the first place in Brazil to be considered by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage. UFOP comprises 142 research laboratories (in 2018 its patent number 130 was registered), approximately 300 outreach projects (community engagement), 12 libraries (including a rare books library from 18th and 19th centuries), a Center of Arts and Conventions, a Movie Theater, and some museums, as the Museum of Pharmacy and the Museum of Mineralogy.
