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 Department of Epidemiology and Population Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine has an opening position for a Data Analyst. A degree in epidemiology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, or health services research, or related field is required. This person will work on studies of health care services and chronic disease epidemiology in National Institutes of Health/NHLBI-funded cohort studies and electronic medical record and insurance claims data.
This position offers exciting opportunities to be involved in a team pursuing innovative research questions pertaining to risk factors for chronic diseases including diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease. Projects include the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL), an NIH-funded multi-center epidemiologic study of over 16,000 Hispanic/Latino adults age 18-74 in four U.S. cities; and the Women’s Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) cohort featuring long term followup of adults living with HIV; and a project assessing HIV care and treatment outcomes in the very large clinic network affiliated with Montefiore Medical Center.
