The Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) is an international leader in immune system and autoimmune disease research, translating discoveries to real-life applications. BRI is one of the few research institutes in the world dedicated to discovering causes and cures to eliminate autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and many others.

As a non-profit organization within the Virginia Mason Health System, BRI promotes clinical and interdisciplinary research, particularly in cancer, neuroscience and heart disease. Established in 1956, BRI is Washington State's oldest medical research institute.

Come join the Linsley Laboratory in Seattle, and learn to apply cutting edge big data approaches to the cure of autoimmune disease.

Who will I work with? Dr. Peter Linsley spent 30 years in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries before joining BRI in 2012, where he now focuses on developing cutting edge Systems Immunology solutions to biomarker, target and responder identification in autoimmune diseases. More information on the laboratory, projects and environment can be found on our website ([link]).

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 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.

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.

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

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.
