Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunities
We are seeking highly motivated individuals to join us

Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason is committed to winning the fight against autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and multiple sclerosis, and immune system diseases such as allergies and asthma. BRI is an internationally recognized medical research institute that accelerates discovery by tackling questions from every angle, translating immunology breakthroughs into clinical therapies and healthier patients.

As a non-profit organization within the Virginia Mason Health System, BRI oversees all clinical research at Virginia Mason and BRI, uniquely combining the expertise of a world-renowned medical research institute with the remarkable care of a healthcare quality leader. BRI supports Virginia Mason clinical investigators in studies across a wide variety of diseases and conditions, such as cardiology and cancer, in addition to autoimmune diseases, allergy and asthma.

The Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Bettelli lab will be engaged in studying novel pathways regulating the differentiation and pathogenicity of T cells, the function of regulatory T cell biology in autoimmunity. Work includes use animal models and human samples. Recent or anticipated PhD, MD or MD/PhD in Immunology or related fields. The scientist will be engaged in studying novel pathways regulating the differentiation and pathogenicity of T cells, the function of regulatory T cell biology in autoimmunity. Work includes use animal models and human samples. Immunology, in vivo mouse models and flow cytometry experience are necessary.

The Harrison Lab works to understand the mechanisms controlling host-microbe interactions at barrier sites such as the skin and gastrointestinal tract. We study how our resident commensal microbes influence the development, education and function of our immune system. A recent, or anticipated, PhD in Immunology is required. Experience in immunology, molecular biology and/or bioinformatics-based analysis of epigenetic/transcriptomic datasets are strongly preferred. Experience of animal models of inflammation or infection is preferable but not essential.

Research in the Lacy-Hulbert lab focuses on the mechanisms of innate immune recognition of self and foreign organisms, and regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses. A PhD in immunology or a related field (such as host-pathogenesis/microbiology/ virology) and experience in immunology, cell biology and/or molecular biology are required. Experience of bioinformatics analysis and models of autoimmunity or inflammation are preferable but not essential.

The Long Laboratory is a translational immunology lab focused on better understanding underlying mechanisms of autoimmune disease, patient variability, and response to therapy. Requires a Ph.D. in Immunology or a related field and experience in tissue culture, cellular and molecular techniques. Prefer experience with flow cytometry and experience with large data-sets.

Benefits include medical, dental, vision, & life insurance, retirement plan, transportation subsidy, 3 weeks of vacation per year, plus 12 paid holidays (9 fixed and 3 float days).
