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.

This translational immunologist collaborative position, at the Benaroya Research Institute, provides a unique opportunity to explore the potentially protective role of exhausted CD8 T cells in type 1 diabetes (T1D) by integrating immunology and systems biology skill sets. The Long Lab is a translational immunology lab focused on better understanding underlying mechanisms of autoimmune disease, patient variability, and response to therapy. Currently, we are primarily focused on three, inter-related projects in the setting of T1D: 1) Causes and consequences of reduced response to IL-2, 2) Differentiation and stability of CD8 T cell exhaustion associated with better outcome, and 3) identification of biomarkers of T1D severity. Each of these projects use human samples, are collaborative in context working with the diabetes team and systems immunology, and use the resources of the BRI Human Immunophenotyping (HIP) Core, supervised by Dr. Alice Long.
