PhD position in Rock Mechanics at Université de Lorraine (France)

We are opening a PhD position in Geomechanics and Seismology at Université de Lorraine, GeoRessources laboratory, France.

The main objective of the phD project is to explore the relation between earthquake magnitude, fault properties and the capacity of a fracture rock mass to accumulate elastic strain during the seismic cycle. THe PhD candidate will work on both numerical and physical modeling.

We are looking forward to receiving applications from highly-motivated candidates with a Master’s degree in strucutral geology, geo-mechanics, civil engineering (or equivalent fields). The position is funded for 3 years. Applications should consist of a CV, a resume and 1 or 2 recommandation letters
