The Buckner Lab at the Benaroya Research Institute in Seattle, Washington is renowned for expertise in translational immunology and human autoimmune disease.
Research in the Buckner Lab focuses on identifying the underlying mechanisms by which the adaptive immune response to self-antigen becomes pathogenic in the setting of human autoimmune study. They use cutting edge techniques and primary human immune cells to study the following autoimmune diseases: type 1 diabetes (T1D), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), muliple sclerosis (MS), systemic lupus erythematosus and irAE in Cancer immunotherapy. They have extensive experience in MHC class II tetramers, T cell cloning, T and B cell functional assays, gene editing and phenotyping of human lymphocytes.
Potential projects in the Buckner Lab include:
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.
The position involves:
$65,479 - $68,490 per year
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.
