ABOUT US

Founded in 1955, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) is one of the nation’s premier institutions for medical education, basic research and clinical investigation. A full-time faculty of some 2,000 conducts research, teaches, and delivers health care in every major biomedical specialty. The college has some 730 medical students, 193 Ph.D. students, 106 MD/Ph.D. students and 275 postdoctoral fellows.

 

Einstein’s major strength, in addition to training physicians and scientists, is its science. During fiscal year 2015, the faculty’s consistently high level of scientific achievement resulted in the awarding of more than $150 million in peer-reviewed grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

 

Einstein is part of Montefiore Medicine Academic Health System, an integrated academic delivery system comprising seven campuses, including 8 hospitals, a multi-county ambulatory network, a new state-of-the art “hospital without beds”, a skilled nursing facility, school of nursing, home health agency, and the state’s first freestanding emergency department. As the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore is a premier academic health system, employing Einstein’s clinical faculty and training Einstein’s medical students, over 1,300 residents, 420 allied health students, and 1,600 nursing students annually.

 

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information. Einstein seeks candidates whose skills, and personal and professional experience, have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence, and the communities we serve.

 

 

The Cognitive Neuropsychology Laboratory (CNL) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of investigators, post-doctoral fellows, and students using psychophysics, EEG, and MRI to study attention, auditory and visual perception, multisensory processing, and executive function, in typical and clinical populations. It is our goal to make significant advances in understanding these processes with the use of cutting edge methodologies and data analytic techniques. In turn, we seek to apply this understanding to explore the processing deficits underlying clinical and developmental disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, and drug addiction.

 

Part of the CNL is the Human Clinical Phenotyping Core (HCP) which serves to promote excellence in human phenotyping and to provide outstanding training in clinical evaluation. The HCP is a fully acting Core of the NIH funded IDDRC whose mission is to advance diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with developmental disabilities with an emphasis on increasing diversity and representation of minorities in research. The HCP provides targeted human phenotyping in order to build an extensive database of enrolled children, young adults and families.
