Work Context

The Seismology team of the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris is looking for an engineer to support regionally the implementation of the seismological component of the RESIF Research Infrastructure.

RESIF ( is a national research infrastructure dedicated to the observation and understanding of the inner Earth using different geophysical approaches (geodesy, seismology, gravimetry).

The construction of the main elements of RESIF is financed as part of the RESIF-CORE Equipment d'Excellence (EquipEx). The Permanent Broadband Network (RLBP, is the RESIF component dedicated to permanent seismological observation in mainland France using a network of stations equipped with broadband seismometers. RESIF-Construction Large Bande (RESIF-CLB) is the RESIF sub-project dedicated to the evolution of the RLBP. Its main objectives are:
• A densification of the RLBP to reach 190 sites on the metropolitan territory.
• The harmonization of scientific and technical equipment and the establishment of tools and procedures to facilitate the operation of this network.

As part of the RESIF-CLB project, IPGP has been entrusted with the research, construction and maintenance of 13 seismological stations in a geographical area that includes the North of France, Normandy, Ile de France and part of the Center. At present, 6 sites are built, 3 sites require construction work and 4 sites require a prospecting and testing phase before construction.
