The Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT (www.iit.it) - was founded with the objective of promoting the country's technological development and further education in science and technology. In this sense, IIT is committed to achieving its scientific program, which it sees in the integration between basic scientific research and the development of technical applications, a major inspirational principle. The research activities cover areas of science of high innovative content, representing the most advanced frontiers of modern technology, with wide application possibilities in various fields from medicine to industry, from computer science to robotics, life sciences, and nanobiotechnology.
For this research position, the candidate will be working on a challenging project in the fields of Plasmonics and advanced nanofabrications [1,2].
The main aim will be the development of novel plasmonic nanodevices able to interface biological tissues and cells providing a deep insight of physico-chemical processes of biological interest, as well as the development of innovative plasmonic biosensors.
We offer a post-doctoral position in Genova for 2 years with competitive annual remuneration depending on the experience of the candidate.
We are seeking for a highly motivated candidate with strong background in nanofabrication, Plasmonics, and biophysics, ready to be in charge of designing, fabricating, implementing and validating under biological conditions different generations of nanostructures for interfacing biological tissue.
