A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in Jane Buckner’s laboratory in the Translational Research Program at the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason.
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to conduct research focused on identifying the underlying mechanisms by which the adaptive immune response to self-antigens becomes pathogenic in the setting of human autoimmune disease.
This research uses human samples from subjects with autoimmune disease including rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematous, and relapsing polychondritis.
A PhD or MD is required.
Experience in immunology is desirable. The successful applicant will be responsible for study design and implementation as well as collaboration within and between labs.
