Location: USA
Application deadlines: Open

Scholarship Description:

Dr. Yang Liu’s Lab in Yale School of Medicine, Department of Pathology is seeking one or two motivated postdoctoral associates to work on spatial omics technique development and their applications to study tissue heterogeneity of pathological disease, primarily cancer. 

The Lab mainly focused on the development of spatial-based omics techniques (Transcriptome, proteome, epigenome, etc..) and the application of techniques to study tumor microenvironments, neurological disease, and microbiome. 

The successful candidate will be working on cutting-edge biotechnique development (see our techniques: DBiT-seq, Cell, 2020; Spatial-CITE-seq, Nature Biotechnology, 2023; DBiT-seq FFPE, BioRxiv, 2021;) and collaborations with pathological groups, immunologists, and oncologists to understand diseases at different omics levels. The postdoc trainees will receive hands-on training, a competitive stipend, and great research and career development support. 

For most information, please refer to our website:

 Available Subjects:

  • Development of spatial omics techniques

Eligibility criteria:

  • The candidate was expected to be trained in one of the fields including, chemistry, molecular and cell biology, cancer biology, immunology, biomedical engineering, genetics, or a related field. 
  • No prior experiences with microfluidics or technique developments are needed.

Application Procedure:

  •  Interested candidates can email their recent CV with a publication list to: [email protected].
