The Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT - was founded with the objective of promoting the country's technological development and further education in science and technology. In this sense, IIT’s scientific program has a strong multidisciplinary character, merging expertise from different platforms from neuroscience to drug discovery, from nanotechnologies to computation.
In the area of materials’ processing, development and characterization, IIT possesses world class facilities and expertise in nanoparticles and nanocomposites production, with emphasis to magnetic, conducting and bioactive composites, nanofabrication, surface science, thermo/mechanical polymer reinforcement, new class of all-natural polymeric nanocomposites, laser spectroscopy, confocal and scanning probe microscopies, third generation photovoltaics, etc.
Close collaborations exist with industry, university departments, and other research centers in Italy and abroad.
Applications are invited for 1 Post-doctoral fellow to be involved in the “In situ synthesis of Polymer Nanocomposites for Environmental Applications”
The research activity will take place in the Nanophysics Department, Smart Materials Platform, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, which is located in Genoa, Via Morego 30, 16163 Italy.
