    Opportunity: Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Research Associate @ Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason -- Seattle, WA (US)
    Submitted by Human Resources; posted on Friday, January 20, 2023

    OVERVIEW

    GENOMIC ANALYSIS OF IMMUNE CELLS IN RESPONSE TO THERAPY IN CANCER AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE. Come join our team and help fight immune diseases!

    The Linsley Lab is broadly engaged in basic and applied studies using complex systems theory, high throughput techniques as well as mathematical and computational tools to understand the functioning of the immune system in health and disease. The group works closely with informaticians and immunologists in many groups at BRI, resulting in a rich environment for quantitative, computational, and laboratory collaborations in immune disease research. Funding is available for two years, contingent upon periodic reviews, with an expectation of extension and expansion. Opportunities for training, conference attendance and publication are available.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    We need an individual to apply cutting edge big data approaches to study of the human immune system. We believe that understanding how the immune system is broken in diseases like cancer and autoimmunity will lead to better patient care. We are looking for a highly motivated and creative individual who enjoys working in a multidisciplinary team-oriented environment to use Systems Biology approaches to help discover new mechanisms, biomarkers and therapies for immune diseases.

    The Linsley Lab at BRI is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate. This individual will drive projects involving RNA-seq profiling (single cell and bulk), and/or cytometry (flow and mass) to elucidate the role of immune cells in response to therapy of autoimmune disease and cancer.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Qualifications:
    • Strong academic record and history of productivity
    • Knowledge of modern experimental biological science
    • Fundamental understanding of the application of statistics to scientific data
    • Experience with statistical tools (R, SAS, Matlab) and/or scripting or higher-level programming languages (Shell, Python, Perl, Java)
    • Strong interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills
    Education:

    A successful candidate for this position will have a Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or life science, with a strong understanding of the principals of biology and bioinformatics.

    COMPENSATION

    $72,679.28 to $87,941.92 per year

    Benefits:
    • Medical, dental, vision hardware insurance
    • Flexible spending accounts: health care, dependent care, commuter
