    Post-doctoral position - Risk of falling - 12 months (LAMIH UMR CNRS 8201, Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France, Valenciennes, France)


    Context: The Laboratoire d’Automatique, de Mécanique et d’Informatique industrielles et Humaines (LAMIH), UMR CNRS 8201 (http://www.uphf.fr/LAMIH/fr/presentation) of the Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France (UPHF - http://www.uphf.fr), is recruiting a post-doctoral fellow for 12 months. The LAMIH is organized into 4 well-identified disciplinary departments: Automation, Mechanics, Computer Science and Human and Life Sciences (SHV). The recruited person will work within the SHV Department, a multidisciplinary department which is essentially based on Biomechanics, Neurophysiology and Psycho-Ergonomics, which means that humans can be apprehended there via a systemic model. The SHV Department has solid collaborations with clinical partners, and in particular with various functional rehabilitation centers as well as nursing homes. These links allow the SHV Department to have access to specific populations, particularly those with locomotor disabilities. The LAMIH has a transversal axis "Human Mobility and Handicap" (MH2) and one of its societal challenges is based on the fall of the vulnerable person.

    Objective: The main goal of this post-doctoral position is to develop technological systems and / or treatment protocols aimed at limiting the risk of falls in vulnerable people.
