RESEARCH ASSOCIATE I

BRONX, NY, US


At Montefiore, DOING MORE means building on a history of firsts to create the future of healthcare. For over 100 years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of medicine with innovations such as the intravenous cardiac pacemaker and one of the nation’s first pediatric kidney transplants. And as we continue to move forward, we look for professionals who want to join our team of leaders and trailblazers to advance the health of our communities in Westchester, the Hudson Valley and the Bronx.

 

The AIDS Center provides HIV primary and specialty care, sexually transmitted disease screening and treatment, HIV biomedical prevention services, Hepatitis C care, and LGBTQ care at the Center for Positive Living/ID Clinic, the Oval Center and the Inpatient Consult Service. Investigators and staff have recently responded to the COVID-19 outbreak by participating in a number of potential breakthrough clinical trials for this illness.  The AIDS Center’s new Clinical Trials Unit is a dedicated research unit to meet the burgeoning needs of the COVID-19 and HIV pandemics through therapeutic and preventive studies including vaccines, other methods of prevention, and new therapeutic agents and approaches. This unit, while under the umbrella of the AIDS Center, operates primarily at an offsite location near the Moses Campus of Montefiore Medical Center; some activities may occur on-site at the Moses Campus, at the Einstein Campus of Montefiore, at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and at various locations in the tri-state New York City region.

 

The Clinical Trials Unit will be serving those with or at-risk for COVID-19 or HIV, aiming to provide the latest research advances to people of the Bronx and surrounding areas.  We pride ourselves on making research and clinical services available to people of diverse backgrounds including race, ethnicity, gender identification, sexual preference, and socioeconomic condition.  The clients we serve know to trust us for our inclusiveness and respect.
