I worked at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Less than a year)
Great people/professors willing to take the time to mentor because of Einstein's close-knit Bronx community.
Far from the city, pretty difficult to interact and collaborate (socially) with grad students downtown at Weill Cornell, MSKCC, and Rockefeller. Tough times during Montefiore takeover, lots of good professors were let go. Hopefully, time will allow Einstein to rehabilitate.

- Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY).
Interview took place with the investigator 1:1. Surprisingly there was no interest for powerpoint presentation with projector in presence of whole lab / group members. Few questions on research interest were asked, and it was promised that the salary will be given as per the NIH rules for post doctoral fellowship. However after joining it was observed that the salary provided every year was below the levels as given by NIH guidelines as well as guidelines given by the Albert Einstein college of Medicine. No promotions even if you have impressive research experience, expertise, skills, teamwork ability, dedication, awards, performance, achievements, scientific publications, etc. Worked in this college for over 4 years however I did not receive any appreciation for my contributions. I felt like discrimination persists in this college. However few faculties in this college are really very good,very encouraging, appreciating, supportive and non biased.
- General questions on past research experience. 1 Answer
I was deceived with respect to the salary as per the NIH guidelines. Even after working for over 4 years salary never matched the rules of the college or of NIH. Please make sure you get right stipend/salary mentioned by NIH and as per the rules of this college. Some investigators do not pay as per the rules. If you dont get the promise of salary as per the rules please look for better places or look for better investigators immediately. Do not waste your time.
