The Pacific Northwest Research Institute (PNRI) is an independent, nonprofit, biomedical research institute with a distinguished history of contributing scientific advances to improve human health. PNRI is growing and is seeking candidates for faculty at the Assistant, Associate, or Senior Investigator level.
At PNRI, we believe that scientific research is key to solving some of the most difficult challenges that humanity faces. Our research uses innovative applications of genetics, genomics, mathematical methods, and evolutionary biology, integrating data from humans and model organisms to address questions with important health and medical consequences. We particularly value research that addresses significant societal impacts, as well.
We also believe that the questions asked and, consequently, the type of discoveries made, are deeply influenced by the scientists who ask them. PNRI is looking for new faculty who contribute diversity both in their scientific perspectives and personal experiences, as well as have a strong desire to actively collaborate with other faculty members.
Successful applicants will demonstrate the following: 1) an ability to establish an externally-funded research program using genetic, computational, and/or genomic approaches in humans and/or model organisms; 2) a commitment to deliver positive impact to society through your research programs and scientific outreach; 3) a willingness to develop and actively participate in collaborative projects that will strengthen the core competencies of the Institute and shape its future; and 4) evidence of contributions to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion through previous work, planned research, and/or depth of understanding.
In addition, preference will be given to candidates whose interests include the following: 1) Interdisciplinary approaches; 2)development of new technologies; and/or 3) translational research
PNRI offers a nimble and supportive administrative environment, a competitive start-up package, hard salary support, and well-equipped laboratory space. The Institute is solely focused on conducting basic and translational research, and is an active player in Seattle’s vibrant science community. To achieve its goals, the Institute actively seeks and nurtures external partnerships with academic, research organizations, and industry. Senior faculty are dedicated to mentoring the independent careers of young investigators and their staff.
