Call for Applications, Bioinformatics @ Benaroya Research Institute (BRI)

February 1, 2022

The Center for Systems Immunology at Benaroya Research Institute (BRI) seeks to recruit outstanding  applicants at multiple levels for open positions in our Bioinformatics Group. The appointments will be at levels  commensurate with experience, training, and achievement, from postdoctoral to senior staff level positions.

We seek candidates who will use systems and/or computational approaches to study the functioning of the  immune system in health and disease, with a particular emphasis on autoimmune diseases, allergy and/or  cancer. A key feature of this position is the exceptional collaborative opportunities BRI offers, with a highly  interactive environment linking individual investigators in basic and translational immunology with systems and  computational expertise. The BRI Systems Immunology Center offers state of the art computing, laboratory, and  animal facilities for research, as well as access to an excellent Genomics Core. The Seattle area also offers a rich  and historically collaborative academic environment, with multiple major Universities, Research Institutions,  Hospitals, and Biotechnology/Pharma and Software companies located in close proximity. 

About BRI. 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. 

Requirements and responsibilities. Ideal candidates will hold PhD degrees, or Master degrees plus additional experience. The successful candidates will: 

• Have significant research experience in systems and/or computational biology. • Have subject matter familiarity with a biological field, ideally immunology.  

• Possess an exceptional track record in his/her chosen field, preferably using systems approaches to  fundamental and/or translational problems in immunology.  

• Demonstrate strong communications skills.  

• Enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment.
