The Kwok Lab - uses class II MHC multimer reagents and other state of art technologies, including single cell RNAseq experiments in examining antigen specific CD4+ T Cells in infectious diseases, peanut allergy, type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.
The Wambre Lab - is seeking an independent, motivated and creative researcher for a Staff Scientist position in the field of immunotherapy. The successful candidate will develop and conduct independent discovery research projects to investigate ex vivo antigen-specific immune response using innovative immunological tools in clinically relevant samples. The Staff Scientist conducts independent biomedical research relevant to current projects at BRI.
The Long Lab - is a translational immunology lab focused on better understanding underlying mechanisms of autoimmune disease, patient variability, and response to therapy. Currently, we are primarily focused on three, inter-related projects in the setting of T1D: 1) Causes and consequences of reduced response to IL-2, 2) Cellular definition and stability of CD8 T cell exhaustion associated with response to therapy, and 3) identification of biomarkers of T1D severity. Each of these projects use human samples, are collaborative in context working with the diabetes team, genomics and systems immunology, and use the resources of the BRI Human Immunophenotyping (HIP) Core.
- Requires a Ph.D. in Immunology or a related field and at least three years of postdoctoral experience.
Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) has a bold mission: Predict, prevent, reverse and cure immune system diseases, from autoimmune disease to cancer to COVID-19. We examine the immune system in both health and disease to understand how disorders start and how to rebalance the immune system back to health. Equipped with innovative tools and robust biorepositories, our team chips away at the biggest mysteries behind these conditions to work toward our vision of a healthy immune system for all. As an independent non-profit organization within Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, we collaborate with clinicians to accelerate the path from innovative lab discoveries to life-changing patient care.
At BRI, each role is valued and an important contributor to the vision and mission. BRI is committed to a safe, caring and diverse workplace; as well as to taking action to further our commitments to foster inclusion, equity and belonging so employees feel comfortable bringing their full selves to work. Consider making a difference, join our team. Because together, we are Powering Possibility.
