In the context of the creation of a Human Motion Analysis Laboratory at the
University of Liège (Belgium), we look for*a post-doctoral researcher with
an excellent scientific profile and a significant experience in motion
analysis systems. The contract may start between September 1, 2010 and
December 31, 2010, with a duration of one or two years.

The main objective is to start a research project exploiting our new motion
analysis equipment, which is based on an active marker technology and which
also includes a force plate measurement system. The candidate will develop
his activities in close collaboration with the Faculty of Applied Sciences
and the Faculty of Medecine.

Even though the equipment shall be devoted in priority to sport activities,
the particular research topic is quite open and may be adapted depending on
the profile and interest of the applicant. For instance, a possible research
project may focus on shoulder motion, including the following aspects:
- analysis of shoulder motion in sport activities,
- biomechanical modelling of the shoulder using a flexible multibody
dynamics approach,
- analysis of human-object interactions, e.g. between the shoulder and a
seat-belt.

Besides, the candidate will be involved in the coordination of other
projects related to motion analysis techniques, e.g. he will provide some
support to PhD students working in this field at ULg.
