Postdoctoral Fellowship in Single Cell Networks, Genetics and Systems Biology

The University of Texas at Austin
United StatesTXAustin


Prof. S. Stephen Yi’s lab at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in Single Cell Networks, Genetics and Systems Biology starting immediately. We have a longstanding interest in the fundamental question on genotype-phenotype relationships. In the era of precision medicine, we integrate high-throughput functional variomics with single cell systems biology to identify genetic and epigenetic biomarkers, and synthetic lethal mechanisms underlying human disease for personalized medicine in the laboratory of Prof. Stephen Yi. Using state-of-the-art technologies, the postdoctoral research will be performed in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment with pioneering basic science experts and clinical physician scientists, which provide ideal career development opportunities for postdocs. Prof. Yi is a faculty member at Dell Medical School, the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering & Sciences as well as the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UT Austin. Prof. Yi is a recognized expert in systems biology, network medicine and functional variomics/regulatory networks. Recent representative publications include Cell (2015), 161: 647-60; Nature Rev. Genetics (2017), 18: 395-410; Cell (2017), 168: 856-66; Cancer Cell (2018), 33: 450-62; TIBS (2018), 43: 576-92; Cancer Research (2020), 80: 4854-67; Nucleic Acids Res (2021), 49: e2. Cancer Discovery (2022), OF1-13. For details, please visit the lab website:


Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in biology, genetics, bioinformatics, computational/systems biology, cancer biology, or relevant fields. Experience with cancer genomics, single cell biology, and next-generation sequencing analysis is a plus.
