Postdoctoral Fellow, Autoimmunity @ Benaroya Research Institute

March 19, 2021

The Khor laboratory at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason Hospital is  seeking highly motivated and creative postdoctoral candidates. The Khor lab works to  understand novel pathways regulating inflammation and autoimmunity. Pathways of  translational interest emerge from our study of autoimmune-relevant pathways  dysregulated in people with Down syndrome, as well as discovery of novel druggable  regulators of inflammation. Our approach is multi-disciplinary and highly collaborative,  ranging from integrative multi-omic studies in both human and animal models to targeted  knockout approaches. Our goal is to empower precision therapy of immune-mediated  diseases in people with and without Down syndrome.  

Benaroya Research Institute 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. 

A recent, or anticipated, PhD in Immunology is required. Experience in multi parameter flow-cytometry is strongly preferred, as is experience with animal handling and  models of inflammation/infection.  

Interested candidates should send inquiries, including a 1-page description of their  current work, and a C.V., to  

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard  to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin,  citizenship, disability or protected veteran status.
