Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has been ranked one of the best places to work among academic institutions. In the The Scientist magazine’s 2009 edition of Best Places to Work in Academia, Einstein ranked third out of 94 U.S institutions. Top ranking went to Princeton University, followed by the University of California, San Francisco. The institutions were graded according to job satisfaction, peers, environment, research resources, pay, management, teaching, and tenure. Einstein’s key strengths were noted to be research resources and management. Einstein is now recruiting scientists for its 40 state-of-the-art laboratories in the Michael F. Price Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine/Harold and Muriel Block Research Pavilion. The $220 million Price Center/Block Pavilion is the largest medical research facility to be constructed in the Bronx since the Einstein opened in 1955.
