Countermeasures for astronauts'reactions: modeling and simulation studies on Earth

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The project will first address the theoretical issues involved in the physics and biomechanics of human movement in weightlessness, including the minimum and maximum forces which can sustain simple linear displacements or more complex paths within an orbiting station. Next, the project aims at developing a biomechanical model of locomotion which takes into account Kinematics, Kinetics and patterns of neuromuscular activity required by the task. Then, the project will involve experimental studies in the lab on Earth with different machines capable of partially simulating the effects of lack or reduction of body wight. Finally, the experimental results will be analyzed and compared with model predictions.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
