The Yin Lab welcomes interest from potential PhD-candidates, post-doctoral fellows, and undergrad researchers. We seek co-workers who are curious about the world, excited to advance the frontiers of infectious disease, chemical origins of life, or human physiology –  and able to dive without fear into the unknown.
