A PhD position is available in KTH MoveAbility Laboratory at Department of Engineering Mechanics, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).

This PhD student project is part of a larger project with objectives to develop a neural data-driven simulation platform that can predict biomechanical functions of a personalized neuromusculoskeletal system. This PhD project aims to investigate methodologies in decoding motor neuron activity by high-density EMG recordings and develop data-driven forward musculoskeletal simulation based on decoded motor neuron activity. The goal of the project is to provide a better understanding of the neuro-mechanical causalities in human movement and the alterations caused by impairment.

A successful candidate will have a master's degree in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, engineering physics or equivalent. The candidate must have good prior knowledge in mechanics, and good programming skills. Previous work with human movement simulation and high-density EMG are of great merit.
