The Biorobotics laboratory (Biorob, https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__biorob.epfl.ch_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=DQ0XtPGNf4Z-QKmyO7w3cT2ZTV2kxoLl5QCsJGJj8cU&s=8Vbvh3NRcb9wWYwDGQqFAVQPP8ujp65bjlfnaSpJtJY&e=) at EPFL
(Lausanne, Switzerland) has one open PhD studentship and one open
postdoc position in numerical simulations of human locomotion. The goal
of the project is to develop neuromechanical models of human locomotion,
together with Stéphane Armand (gait analysis, University of Geneva) and
Alexandros Kalousis (machine learning, University of applied sciences,
Western Switzerland), in the framework of a collaborative Sinergia
project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The
neuromechanical models will include numerical models of spinal cord
circuits coupled to biomechanical simulations of the body. The purpose
of the project is to model pathological gaits resulting from motor
impairments such as cerebral palsy,  and to compare and combine
neuromechanical simulation and machine learning approaches for gait
analysis. The positions start in September 2018 and are fully funded for
4 years.

EPFL is one of the leading Institutes of Technology in Europe and offers
internationally competitive salaries and research infrastructure.

Applications will be considered starting from Feb 15 2018, and then
continuously until the positions are filled. The starting date is
September 2018.
