The PhD fellowship is granted by the NERA EU project (http://www.nera-eu.org). The PhD candidate will be included in the ISTerre "Risks" research team and will actively collaborate with European partners of the NERA project.
The objectives of the PhD are twofold :
to understand the key subsoil parameters that locally control the strain values and the spatial variability of earthquake ground motion ;
to develop and calibrate simple, engineering-oriented, correlations or models that could allow to incorporate basin and surface topography effects in seismic design (building codes, microzonation studies, …).
Mode details can be found in the attached document (PhD_position.pdf).
