The Labex (Laboratory of Excellence) EpiGenMed is a collaborative health science research program at the University of Montpellier that is financed by the Excellence Initiative of the French Ministry of Research and that involves leading research laboratories of the area. Five major axis of research (involving 55 top-level research groups) are supported by this initiative:
- Genome and Epigenome
- Cell Cycle, Cell Fate and Development
- Infection and Immunity
- Integrating Systems in Neuroscience
- Biophysics and Systems Biology
Each year, the EpiGenMed post-doctoral program offers several postdoctoral fellowships for a period of 2 years (1 year renewable) and the International PhD program offers several 3-year Ph.D positions.
