Labex EPIGENMED Montpellier, France

From genome and epigenome to molecular medicine

Postdoctoral Program 2017


Poster post doc 2017




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 axes of research (involving 58 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








The EpiGenMed post-doctoral program 2017 offers 11 fellowships for a period of 2 years (1 year renewable).

The EpiGenMed research group leaders will select their candidate who has to be validated by the Labex EpiGenMed Scientific Committee.

Applications should be send directly to the following team leaders.
