Campbell Lab Opportunities

Postdoctoral Fellowships are now available in Immunology Research at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI). Come join our team in Seattle, and learn to apply cutting edge cellular analyses combined with big data approaches to the cure of immune mediated diseases. Please send any inquiries about potential job openings to

What Will I Work On?

Potential projects in the Campbell Lab may focus on:

  • The molecular basis for regulatory T cell specialization in different tissue sites.
  • Key factors that control regulatory T cell abundance and function during infection and autoimmunity.
  • Molecular pathways regulated by BCAP-dependent signaling that control effector T cell activation and function.
  • The transcriptional and epigenetic basis of T cell specialization during healthy immune responses and immune-mediated diseases.
  • Determining how environmental factors such as diet, infection history and microbiome influence responses to immune-modulating and tolerizing therapies for autoimmune diseases.
  • T cell-epithelial cell cross-talk in the skin and lungs in the context of healthy tissue-repair responses and immune-mediated diseases such as allergy and scleroderma.
  • Development and optimization of new disease modifying therapies in autoimmunity.

Who Will I Work With?

Immunology research involves interdisciplinary teams, involving both core facilities and the laboratories of multiple Principal Investigators (PIs), including Estelle Bettelli, PhD, Jessica Hamerman, PhD, and Steve Ziegler, PhD. The Campbell Lab also works closely with core facilities, including the Bioinformatics Department, Genomics Core, Cell and Tissue Analysis and the Tetramer Core Lab

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 diabetesrheumatoid arthritismultiple sclerosisallergies and asthma.

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 immunology or a related field. Expertise in T cell assay and Flow Cytometry analysis is preferred.
