  • PhD position in Biomechanics (DECATHLON and LAMIH-Polytech. Univ. Hauts-de-France)

    The Laboratory of Automation, Mechanics and Industrial and Human Computing (LAMIH, UMR-CNRS 8201) of the Polytechnic University Hauts-de-France (UPHF) with the company DECATHLON are seeking a PhD student to conduct biomechanical research for the evaluation of the locomotion of young sportsmen in different footwear conditions in various sports activities (athletics, sports-co, ...) via a longitudinal study.
    The thesis will be carried out at DECATHLON Campus (Villeneuve d'Ascq) and LAMIH (Valenciennes). The methodology will permit a longitudinal follow-up of young sportsmen on parameters resulting from a movement analysis (kinematics, kinetics, EMG, ultrasound) and from the functional evaluation of the movement.

    The PhD will involve the following aspects:
    • Literature review
    • Implementation of experiments allowing longitudinal monitoring of young athletes
    • Experiments on a cohort of children
    • Development of biomechanical analysis
    • Development of statistical analysis
    • Presentations and regular reports to DECATHLON and LAMIH

    Student profile:
    • Good knowledge of: Biomechanical modelling; Biomechanical measurement tools
    • Knowledge in: Motion analysis; Programming (Matlab); Data analysis
    • The ability of develop good relationships with sports people and with children
    • Good level in French and English (both written and spoken)

    Position will be placed at: DECATHLON Campus, 4 Boulevard de Mons, 59650 Villeneuve-d'Ascq

    Supervisory Team: Dr Eleni GRIMPAMPI (DECATHLON), Dr Maxime ROUX (DECATHLON), Pr Emilie SIMONEAU (LAMIH –UMR-CNRS 8201), Dr Sébastien LETENEUR (LAMIH –UMR-CNRS) and Dr Christophe GILLET (LAMIH –UMR-CNRS).

    Interested applicants should contact and with their CV and cover letter.

    Closing date: 20 January 2020.
