Inria Nancy Grand Est (https://www.inria.fr/en/centre/nancy) invites qualified applicants to submit their CVs for a Postdoc position in Nancy (16 months, starting Nov. 1, 2018).
For more information and to apply to the position, please visit https://jobs.inria.fr/public/classic/en/offres/2018-00678
The recruited person will pursue research activities on computer models of 1D mechanical structures in a medical context (catheters navigating a patient's vasculature). A particular focus will be put on contact management: exact force computation and application, response (e.g. deformation) of contact surface, self-contact. The proposed solutions will rely on the basis of Solid Mechanics but will harvest the field of Computer Graphics to efficiently leverage implicit surfaces. A second focus will be placed on validation, and the evaluation of the physical accuracy of the proposed simulation framework. In that context, we've been collaborating for many years with physicians at the local University Hospital.
Technical skills and level required: PhD in computer science or applied mathematics; solid knowledge in computer graphics; good to excellent level in C++ programming; knowledge in solid mechanics as well as skills in computer vision and experience in designing and carrying out experimentations will be appreciated.
Languages: French or English
Relational skills: readiness to work in a team, in a multicultural environment; ease in communicating research work; eagerness to convey new research ideas.
