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, the Institute 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 an Industrial project for the development of water-resistant biocompatible paper-based food containers.
The research activity will take place in the Nanophysics Department, Smart Materials Platform, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, which is located in Genova, Via Morego 30, 16163 Italy.
