Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT, www.iit.it) is a non-profit institution with the primary goal of promoting Italy's technological development and creating scientific knowledge. Research at IIT is carried out in highly innovative scientific fields with state-of-the-art technology.
IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created a large-scale infrastructure in Genova and a network of 10 state-of-the-art laboratories countrywide with an international staff of about 1100 people from more than 50 countries. IIT's research endeavour focuses on high-tech and innovation, representing the forefront of technology with possible applications from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nano-biotechnologies.
A post-doctoral position is available for highly motivated candidates at the Center for Nanotechnology Innovation (CNI) in Pisa, in collaboration with the IIT Graphene Labs (http://graphene.iit.it) and with partners working on the EU Flagship project on graphene supported by the European Union (http://www.graphene-flagship.eu/GF/index.php) (2013-2023 period)
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong background in synthesis and characterization of graphene and 2D materials. The candidate tothis position will work in the field of graphene and 2D heterostructures for the development of novel all-2D devices whose physics and mechanics are accessible on soft polymeric or plastic substrates. This will involve synthesis of graphene and novel 2D materials adopting CVD techniques, investigation and tailoring of their fundamental properties, device fabrication and characterization.
A PhD in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or a related discipline is required. Previous experience at synchrotron facilities, as well as in various surface characterization techniques, is considered a big plus as are. competences on one or more programming languages.We value scientists who can interact effectively with an interdisciplinary team, have a high degree of independence and take accountability for their project. The successful candidate will be offered a two-year internationally competitive salary package commensurate to qualifications and experience.
Please submit cover letter including research accomplishments and interests, CV and 2 reference letters to
quoting “Post doc position CNI 2D heterostructures” in the subject line.
The closing date for applications is February 29, 2016.
