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 Einstein-Mount Sinai Diabetes Research Center is conducting high-quality and cutting-edge research in diabetes, obesity, metabolism and endocrinology. The particular focus of the Shinoda lab (opens in April 2018) is beige adipocytes. Beige adipocytes are a novel type of adipocytes recently discovered in humans with anti-obesity effect. Loss of beige adipocytes is a major etiology of adulthood obesity, insulin resistance and dyslipidemia. The Shinoda lab is looking to hire a Research Technician C to assist in our multidisciplinary research projects in genetics and developmental biology of beige adipocytes. The position involves training in and use of a wide variety of methods in molecular biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, cell biology, and metabolism The position also includes general lab organization, ordering, and maintenance of computer-based records of protocols and reagents. The lab has interesting research opportunities with a collaborative and friendly atmosphere. The technician will be expected to participate in the scientific activities of the laboratory, including attendance in lab meetings and preparation and presentation of research results. Candidates should be willing to make more than a two-year commitment, and must be available for an interview in New York.
Our lab is in the Department of Medicine/Division of Endocrinology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, a major research institution with outstanding core research facilities.
