Post doc in Computational and macromolecule interactions

B.C. 70808

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT www.iit.it) with its headquarters in Genoa (Italy) is a non-profit institution with the primary goal of creating and disseminating scientific knowledge and strengthening Italy's technological competitiveness. Our research areas cover scientific topics of high innovative content representing the most advanced frontiers of modern technology, with wide application opportunities in various fields ranging from medicine to industry, from computer science to robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnology.

IIT has created an IIT-Network of centers within Italian research institutions based in Lecce, Milan, Naples, Pisa, Turin, Parma, Trento and Rome.

The Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare at CRIB (CABHC@CRIB; Naples, Italy) uses cutting edge technologies to engineer biologically inspired material platforms for applications in the biomedical sector.

Application is now open for a post-doctoral research position in computational and macromolecule interactions. The research activity is part of "BERSAGLI – Bersagli, sonde e segnali in terapia diagnostica - POR Campania FESR 2007/2013 O.O. 2.1 - CUP B25C13000310007- ID SMILE 022" project granted by Regione Campania and included in TENS platform at CABHC@CRIB in Naples.

The successful candidate will be working in the laboratory of IIT@CRIB on the computational aspect of macromolecules interactions with close connection with biophysical methods such as NMR and/or SAXS. He/she will be involved in a challenging project and will develop new approaches to combine experimental methods with advanced molecular dynamics sampling methods (free energy calculations) in the context of macromolecules interactions to better understand the thermodynamic of polymers and polymer mixtures.

He/she will develop advanced acquisitions and analysis techniques for gradient diffusion approaches, for which in-depth knowledgeof the thermodynamic of polymer is required.

The successful candidate is a highly motivated researcher with a desire to begin an independent career based on the above identified subjects.

Post-doc position in Tissue Engineering at the Laboratory of Nanotechnology for Precision Medicine

BC: 71069

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Genova, Italy (http://www.iit.it) is a private law Foundation, created with special Government Law no. 269 dated September 30th 2003 with the objective of promoting Italy's technological development and higher education in science and technology. Research at IIT is carried out in highly innovative scientific fields with state-of-the-art technology.

A post-doc position to develop “Organs-on-Chips” is available in the Laboratory of Nanotechnology for Precision Medicine at IIT.

Candidates should have a PhD in Tissue Engineering or closely related fields and an excellent publication record and should be highly motivated to work in an interdisciplinary team.

The candidate will work on the development of microfluidic-based organs-on-chips.

These microchips will be used to recapitulate the microarchitecture and functions of living organs and pathological tissues such as cancer and will possibly form an accurate alternative to traditional animal testing and enable high-throughput screening of drugs and nanomedicines.

The candidate should have:

  • strong skills in tissue engineering as well as in molecular, cellular and in vivo tumor biology;
  • documented experience in primary cell culture and analysis;
  • excellent oral and written communication skills in English and the ability to work both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team.

A fellow position for the project: “Artificial retina: development and implant of the photovoltaic artificial retina in experimental models of photoreceptor degeneration"

CB:69604

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT (www.iit.it) was founded with the objective of promoting Italy’s technological development and further education in science and technology. In this sense, IIT's scientific program is based on the combination of basic scientific research and the development of technical applications, a major inspirational principle. The research areas cover scientific topics of high innovative content representing the most advanced frontiers of modern technology, with wide application possibilities in various fields ranging from medicine to industry, from computer science to robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnology.

A fellow position is available in the group led by Prof. F. Benfenati at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia Neuroscience and Brain Technologies Department (IIT-NBT, Genova, Italy).

The project will study the long-term functioning of the implanted artificial retina and the physiological rescue of sight in animal models bearing photoreceptor degeneration.

One of the most prevalent causes of blindness is the progressive degeneration of photoreceptors typical of Retinitis pigmentosa and related genetic retinal diseases. The scarce success of drug treatments, gene therapy or stem cell transplantation in the most advanced forms of RP encouraged many groups to attempt a restoration of vision using electrical stimulation of the spared retinal network. The aim of the project is to:

  1. exploit a sub-retinal prosthesis consisting of a photovoltaic polymer;
  2. perform long-term biological testing for biocompatibility in the rat and pig bearing photoreceptor degeneration;
  3. analyze the physiological performances and long-term tolerability of the implant by electrophysiological (ERG/VEP) and behavioral techniques, as a final assessment before human experimentation.
