Join the Lab
We are looking for talented and motivated researchers to join the lab.
Yi lab is currently recruiting graduate students for Fall 2022. Students who are interested in genomics, epigenomics and evolution are encouraged to apply.
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.
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.
