Join the Lab

We are looking for talented and motivated researchers to join the lab.

Graduate Students

Yi lab is currently recruiting graduate students for Fall 2022. Students who are interested in genomics, epigenomics and evolution are encouraged to apply.

Undergraduate Researchers

We are always interested in working with talented undergraduate students. Previously, students from diverse backgrounds have joined the Yi lab, coming from biology, chemistry, engineering, and computer science.

Research Scientists

We are currently looking for talented scientists to join the new lab and work on comparative genomic and epigenomic projects.


Several postdoctoral positions are available. For an overview of our current research projects refer to the Research and Publications pages.

Comparative Neurogenomics and Epigenomics

Postdoctoral positions are available to investigate human brain evolution using comparative genomic and epigenomic tools. Strong quantitative background and practical skills in bioinformatics are necessary.

Evolutionary Epigenomics

Scholars who are interested in pursuing epigenomic studies of nonmodel organisms are encouraged to apply. Our current interests include, but not limited to, insects, marine invertebrates, snakes, and birds. In other words, we have a lot of questions and ideas involving a variety of species and genomics/epigenomics methods. Interested? Please send an inquiry.
