Overview

Combatting Immune Disease Through Genomics Analysis!  Come join our team and help fight immune diseases. 

 

We need individuals to apply cutting edge big data approaches to study 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 highly motivated and creative individuals who enjoy working in a multidisciplinary team-oriented environment to use Systems Biology approaches to discover new mechanisms, biomarkers and therapies for immune diseases. 

 

Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) is an internationally recognized medical research institute committed to finding a cure for autoimmune and immune-mediated diseases, through a combination of basic and translational research programs. This means you can contribute to scientific advances that have a direct impact on people afflicted with these diseases, including type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, allergies, and asthma. BRI research leadership has identified Bioinformatics as a key enabling technology, so there is broad and strong support for the analysis, and visualization of research data.  

Responsibilities

The Bioinformatics Group at BRI is seeking multiple Bioinformatician II-III’s. These individuals will drive project teams performing RNA-seq profiling (single cell and bulk), and/or cytometric studies (flow and mass) of immune cells in autoimmune disease and cancer.

 

The Bioinformatics Group 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. Opportunities for training, conference attendance and publication are available.

Requirements

  • Ph.D. preferred in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or life science, with a strong understanding of biology and bioinformatics.
  • Bioinformatician II: Ph.D: in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or other life science with a strong understanding of the principals of bioinformatics, and 3 or more years related experience; alternatively an M.S. in the above listed fields and 6 or more years experience.
  • Bioinformatician III: Ph.D: in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or other life science with a strong understanding of the principals of bioinformatics, proven ability to develop new methodology when needed, and 6 or more years related experience; alternatively an M.S. in the above listed fields and 9 or more years experience.
  • 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. 

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.
