Post doc in Advanced analysis of neural signals

CB: 72020

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT - was founded with the objective of promoting Italy’stechnological development and further education in science and technology. In this sense, IIT’s scientific program is based on the combination of basic scientific research with the development of technical applications, a major inspirational principle. The research areas cover scientific topics of high innovative content, which represent 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.

We invite applications for one postdoctoral position focusing on the development of advanced mathematical methods for analysing fluorescence signals recorded in cortical networks expressing the genetically encoded calcium indicator GCaMP6 during two-photon microscopy experiments.

The applicants should have a strong background in numerate sciences, a strong interest and previous experience in MATLAB, be highly independent and have a strong propensity for interdisciplinary research. Experience in or understanding of experimental neuroscience is desirable.

Candidates must hold a PhD in computational neuroscience, bio-physics or a related discipline. We are looking for  highly motivated and creative individuals willing to work in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary research environment and to interact with both experimental and theoretical neuroscientists.

Research activities will be carried out in the newly established and highly interdisciplinary Neural Coding Laboratory, which is jointly supervised by Dr. Panzeri and Dr. Fellin with the aim of combining experiments and mathematics to crack the neural code.

For reference to recent work of the PIs please see Zuo et al. Cur. Biol. 2015; Panzeri et al. Trends Cogn. Neurosci. 2015; Bovetti and Fellin, J. Neurosci. Methods 2015; Einevoll et al. Nat. Rev. Neurosci. 2013; Beltramo et al., Nat. Neurosci. 2013.

Applications (full CV, two references letters and statement of research interest) should be sent by email to Dr. Stefano Panzeri ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) and Dr. Tommaso Fellin ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

Internship at the Center for Nanoscience and Technology (CNST)

CB 71738

The Center for Nanoscience and Technology (CNST) in Milan is one of the network nodes established by Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in close collaboration with Italian academic institutions.

Research at CNST focuses on material science and spans the whole gamut of R&D, from conception and realization of a new material to its comprehensive characterization through to its final application in devices.

The areas of competence at CNST are Material Chemistry, Molecular Optolectronics, Printed Electronics, Nanotechnology Fabrication and Optical – Photophysical - Morphological and Theoretical Characterization.

CNST offers 1 internship position on projects aiming at the development of a new, disruptive optoelectronic technology based on solution-processable hybrid perovskites semiconductors.

Possible project topics are:

  • Time-resolved optical spectroscopy to investigate elementary photo-excitations dynamics, mechanisms of generation, relaxation and deactivation and determine the structure-function relationship in self-assemble hybrid perovskites.
  • Design and optimization of low temperature fabrication routes for efficient, all printed, hybrid single junction and tandem solar cells.
  • Realization and characterization of 3D hybrid perovskites-based light-emitting transistors


Ideal candidates must hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Material Science, Physics, Engineering or related subjects and have strong communication and team-working skills.  


Interested applicants should contact Annamaria Petrozza ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) submitting their CV and contacts of 2 referees by December 20, 2015.

The position is contingent on budget approval.

The aim is the implementation of  novel resonant nano-structures to enhance the imaging and spectral capabilities of the pre-existing setup and improve the imaging of protein complexes in cell membranes and biological tissues.

Ideal candidates should have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science and good knowledge of both Italian and English.

Applicants should possess excellent specific skills in the following fields:

  • Infrared spectroscopy and Imaging
  • Nanofabrication techniques, clean-room technology
  • AFM imaging techniques
  • TeraHertz and Infrared laser sources

and be also familiar with the basic theory of infrared spectroscopy and plasmonics.

Extensive experience and competence with software for acquisition and analysis is requested: Labview, Igor Pro, Gwyddeon or similar programs.

The position is contingent on budget approval

Interested applicants should submit their CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the names of at least two referees both to Prof. Giancarlo Ruocco ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
