  • PhD Position in Biomedical Engineering - Human Postural Control (PolyMTL)

    A PhD position is available at the Polytechnique Montreal’s Laboratory for Assistive and Rehabilitation Technologies (POLAR) for a research project focused on human neuromuscular control. The position is open for appointment from September 1, 2020 or sooner.
    Position description
    In collaboration with the Neuromuscular Control Lab (REKLAB: in the department of biomedical engineering at McGill University, the selected candidates will focus on the study and identification of interactions between joint stiffness properties and vision in human postural control by incorporating Virtual Reality (VR) technology. This study will enhance our knowledge of the complicated mechanisms underlying the control of stance and give us valuable tools in order to diagnose movement disorders and provide affected individuals with appropriate rehabilitation strategies and assistive interventions. We are looking for a highly motivated, outstanding candidate with a MSc degree in biomedical, mechanical or electrical engineering, preferably with relevant background in control systems, signal processing and system identification.

    • Experience with Object-oriented programing (C++/C#/Python).
    • Experience with analysis and simulation in MATLAB/Simulink
    • Excellent interpersonal skills (teamwork), autonomy and proactivity.

    • Experience with Virtual Reality (VR) devices and VR development environments
    • Knowledge in signal processing and filtering
    • Experience with Electromyography (EMG)

    • Fully funded position + Access to additional funding from the TransMedTech Institute
    • International student tuition fee remission
    • Opportunities to attend international conferences, seminars and skill development workshops

    How to Apply:

    Candidates should submit an application package consisting of a curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, contact information of two referees, to the following email with the subject line of “PHD POSITION IN HUMAN POSTURAL CONTROL”. The DEADLINE for application is Jan 31st, 2020.
