PhD position in motion control and predictive simulation
Department of Computer Science, University Claude Bernard Lyon 1, France
The LIRIS lab of University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 in France is offering a PhD student position on: Musculoskeletal, real-time and predictive simulation of pathological gaits
This research project aims to study and design numerical models of the human body capable to represent musculoskeletal disorders. It also aims to propose and develop algorithmic methods to predict locomotion for such disorders. This work will eventually lead to the development of a new generation of predictive simulator, based on the estimation of optimal motions, with the objective of being able to predict and therefore improve patient-specific therapeutic strategies. This simulator will propose numerical means for guiding and predicting therapies, and can complement existing empirical approaches that currently rely on the evolution of therapies over time, based on measured data.
The PhD position is funded by the French Research Agency (ANR), under the PRCI project OMEGA. A budget for equipment and travels accompanies the position. The position is being offered for three years. The PhD student will join the SAARA research team, specialized in simulation, analysis and animation of complex scenes involving virtual humans. The work to be done in this project will benefit from past and ongoing works undertaken in the research team on motion control, physics-based animation and forward musculoskeletal simulation.
The applicant must hold a MSc degree in Computer Science with a working knowledge of computer graphics or a MSc degree in Mechanics, Biomedical engineering or Biomechanics with serious experiences in computer science and programming. Knowledge in control systems, optimization or robotics will be appreciated. The applicant must have good interpersonal skills, rigor and autonomy, writing and speaking skills in English (French will be appreciated). The applicant must have good C++ programming skills.
A complete application should contain the following documents
Applications should be submitted electronically by email to email@example.com
The PhD position shall begin between September 1, 2017 and October 31, 2017. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
