4 Positions available in Biomechanics - Université de Montréal, Canada

The Simulation and Movement Modeling lab (S2M) is attached to the School of Kinesiology and Physical Activity Sciences (EKSAP) of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Montreal. The S2M brings together about 20 students in kinesiology, mechanical and biomedical engineering, physics and computer science under the supervision of Mickaël Begon (associate professor at EKSAP and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering) in biomechanics and Fabien Dal Maso (assistant professor at EKSAP) in neuro-biomechanics. Students carry out both fundamental (eg muscular force estimation) and applied (eg orthosis design) projects in a cutting-edge infrastructure (VICON 19-camera optoelectronic system, Delsys EMG system with wireless pre-amplified electrodes, Bertec treadmill instrumented for force platforms, 4 AMTI force platforms, EEG Brain Vision 64 electrodes).

The main axes of research are:

musculoskeletal modeling of the shoulder and upper limb;
simulation and optimization of sports and artistic movements;
design of innovative orthoses;
understanding the neuro-biomechanical mechanisms of fatigue and walking.

4 positions are available:
1) a postdoctoral fellow in dynamic optimization of acrobatics
2) a postdoctoral fellow or PhD candidate in biomechanics of piano movement
3) a master or PhD candidate in conception of custom foot orthotics
4) a research assistant in biomechanics
