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.
We have also been recognized by Forbes as one of the country's best midsize employers in 2019. Forbes ranked Einstein in the top overall nationally among midsize employers. Einstein ranked 3rd within the education category in New York State and 9th nationally among all midsize education employers.

The Rastogi Lab, located in the Pediatric Translational Research facility at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is focused on the investigation of mechanisms underlying obesity-related asthma in children. We have found that systemic immune responses in obese asthmatic children are skewed to a non-atopic Th1 phenotype, which is associated with metabolic dysregulation. We are now proposing to investigate the mechanisms underlying these non-atopic immune responses.
We are seeking highly motivated individuals for a Lab Technician position who have experience and/or are comfortable with processing human samples and are interested in mechanistic studies of chronic diseases including asthma. Under the guidance of Dr. Rastogi, the technician will be responsible for processing of samples collected from children and performing the downstream assays, that will include use of flow cytometry, functional cellular studies, confocal microscopy, immunoblotting and RNA, and DNA processing. Expertise in T cell immunology is a major plus.
