Open PhD project in ISTerre Université Grenoble Alpes

The project focuses on the process of maturation of active faults in the upper crust by chemical alteration of their fault walls, and on the feedback between alteration and tectonic activity. This topic is at the center of the AlterAction ANR project (https://anr-alteraction.osug.fr) gathering 20 scientists from four institutions funded for 42 months (2024 2027).
