Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Research Support - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
We are looking to expand our group with a highly motivated, organized and team-oriented individual who will aid in the establishment of a new biorepository which will provide a key resource for various pre-clinical research studies.
We particularly solicit applications from recent college graduates with plans to enter Medical or graduate school upon expanding their (bio)medical research experience. We offer a vibrant and diverse group of clinical and basic research investigators who aim at improving the care for patients with hematologic diseases. A background in clinical study coordination and/or biomedical research will be considered a plus but is not a requirement.
The Study Coordinator will work closely with principal investigators (PI), Drs. Henny Billett and Britta Will, to develop the study protocol and protocol amendments for Internal Review Board (IRB) approval as needed, including the development of new measures. If desired, the Study Coordinator will be able to participate in pre-clinical research projects conducted on specimen collected.

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, e...mploying 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.
