Teaching and internship

We are very involved in scientific, medical and veterinary education, either through their responsibilities as university teaching modules or by welcoming and supervising students. Do not hesitate to contact us by email by sending CV and cover letter to the team leaders.

Graduate school

The UMR754 is attached to the E2M2 graduate school (Evolution Ecosystems Microbiology Modeling) of Lyon 1 University, which groups together 11 research units. All teams can host PhD students either on dedicated research finances or as part of the recruitment competition (June-July) of the doctoral school. 
If you wish to join us for a PhD, visit the graduate school website to access the projects or directly contact us.
