Are you passionate about investigating how human skeletal muscles change their biological structure in response to injury, training and robot-interaction? Are you interested in contributing to developing breakthrough rehabilitation robotics technologies for improving human movement?
The Neuromechanical Modeling and Engineering Lab (http://bit.ly/NMLab ) is seeking for an outstanding post-doctoral fellow to work within the ERC project INTERACT. You will join an international team working on a high-gain/high-risk project at the frontiers of neurophysiology, biomechanics and robotics (http://bit.ly/NMLTube ).
Neurological injuries such as stroke leave millions of people disabled worldwide every year. Motor improvement is promoted via physical training with appropriate stimuli to the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. If neuro-rehabilitation robots could be controlled to generate optimal stimuli to the body, a new era in neurorehabilitation would begin!
This post-doc opening focuses on the experimental study of skeletal muscle adaptation and remodeling in response to load and strain across large time scales, e.g., multiple weeks. The successful candidate will employ multi-scale measuring techniques to investigate changes in muscle activation, fascicle length, pennation angle, volume, and force-generating capacity (e.g., torque and stiffness). This will involve the combined use of imaging (i.e., ultrasound, MRI), dynamometry and electromyography techniques
