Description de la mission

By joining the BRGM Geological and Mining Research Bureau, you'll be part of the leading public reference establishment for Earth Sciences, alongside 1,000 passionate experts working across 29 establishments located in France and French overseas territories.

o cartography and natural telluric hazard prevention (risks from volcanic and seismic activity, land movements);
o high-energy geothermics (geological and geophysical prospecting);
o primary mineral resources (deposit prospecting, quarry plan development);
- contributing, alongside the Regional Director, to the identification of the needs of our clients and partners, and the development of new projects;
- mentoring a junior engineer on the issues involved in geology and risks;
- communicating and promoting our results with regional partners, in symposia, and in scientific reviews;
