Postdoctoral fellow positions in cancer stem cells, single cell genomics, and tumor immunology
The Yun laboratory studies multiple aspects of brain cancer biology, employing techniques in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and mouse models. We study mechanisms that regulate cancer stem cell states and the interplay between cancer and immune cells in mediating therapy resistance and cancer progression at the single cell level.
We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow with strong interest and expertise in single cell biology, stem cell biology, tumor immunology, or computational biology.

HMRI is located in the Texas Medical Center, adjacent to Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, and MD Anderson Cancer Center, providing ample opportunities to interact with researchers in these neighboring institutions.
The Yun lab works hard and plays hard. We love what we do, and we are looking for colleagues with demonstrated passion for science, outstanding work ethics, and excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. Postdoc candidates with a Ph.D. in tumor immunology or single cell genomics/computational biology are encouraged to apply. To be successful, candidates must be self-driven, smart, focused, disciplined, organized, supportive, and willing to work hard in a team setting. Salary will be commensurate with established NIH guidelines.
