The Harrison Lab at the Benaroya Research Institute (BRI) in Seattle, WA is seeking highly-motivated postdoctoral candidates in the areas of mucosal immunology, specifically T and B cell responses to commensal microbes. 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. The Harrison Lab (www.harrison-lab.org) works to understand the mechanisms controlling host-microbe interactions at barrier sites such as the skin and gastrointestinal tract. We study how our resident commensal microbes influence the development, education and function of our immune system. To do so, we utilize a multi-disciplinary approach combining development and implementation of tools to track commensal-specific T and B cells in healthy and inflamed tissues, with single-cell and population level transcriptomics and epigenetic analyses of T and B cell differentiation to investigate how the host mounts and regulates immunity to the microbiome.
