BRI is an internationally recognized medical research institute focused on finding cures for autoimmune and immune-mediated diseases. We stress excellence in advanced laboratory experimentation and carefully designed translational research programs. This offers our scientists the opportunity to directly impact the lives of people suffering from diseases including type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, allergies and asthma.
Postdoctoral Fellowships are now available in the Ray lab in the Systems Immunology Division at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI).
Come join our team in Seattle, and learn to apply cutting edge approaches to the understand the mechanisms of autoimmune disease and find new therapies.
Potential projects in the Ray Lab may focus on:
- The mechanisms of disease-associated genetic variants using massively parallel perturbations and base editing approaches in human cells.
- The chromatin states in human T cell subsets in the context of autoimmune diseases.
- Identifying regulatory regions important to T cell function in mice and humans.
Systems Immunology involves interdisciplinary teams, involving both core facilities and the laboratories of multiple Principal Investigators (PIs), including Dr. Peter S. Linsley, Dr. Hamid Bolouri, and Dr. John Ray. Our website has more information on our core facilities and PIs.
We are seeking enthusiastic, highly motivated yet team-oriented individuals with an aptitude for learning and a desire to improve human health. The individuals we are seeking will hold doctoral degrees in modern experimental immunology, mathematics, statistics and/or bioinformatics. Experience in experimental science, genomics, sequence analysis, data modeling and visualization, and statistics is desirable, but not essential, as training opportunities will be provided.
If this description fits you, please consider joining our team of Systems Immunologists, and become trained in the application of Systems Immunology approaches to Immunology and Autoimmune diseases.
