Join Our Team

Postdoctoral Fellowships are now available in Systems Immunology at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI). Come join our team in Seattle, and learn to apply cutting edge big data approaches to the cure of autoimmune disease. Please send your CV and an introductory letter to

What will I work on?

Potential projects include linking T cell ancestry and transcriptome phenotypes of disease associated lymphocytes; and characterizing molecular profiles of lymphocyte subsets involved in autoimmune disease progression and response to therapy.

Who will I work with?

Systems Immunology involves interdisciplinary teams, involving both core facilities and the laboratories of multiple Principal Investigators (PIs), including Dr. Peter S. Linsley. Our website has more information on our core facilities and PIs.

What is BRI and why do I want to work there?

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.

What is Systems Immunology?

Systems Immunology uses bioinformatics and high throughput genomics techniques to elucidate the functioning of the immune system in health and disease, and to personalize therapies. This data-driven approach to science is emerging as a key enabling technology that will lead to cures for immune dysfunctions. Systems immunology approaches typically employ teams of scientists, trained across a wide spectrum of disciplines, from mathematics and statistics, to modern experimental biology.

What is our program?

The goal of our program is to train Individuals in Systems Immunology, and to apply the knowledge gained to designing and implementing insightful new experiments in basic and translational research programs of our PIs.

Who should apply?

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.
