Post doc in the area of cell and tissue on chip –3D micro-nanostructured materials for cell and tissue testing - [ Postdoc ]

Workplace: , IIT@CRIB
Added on: 03/05/2016 - Expires on: 20/06/2016

One Post doctoral position is available at the Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare ( , Naples,

a research node of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia ( for highly motivated candidates in a project aiming at engineering cell instructive materials by micro-nanopatterning bio and topological cues on material substrates.

The Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare (CRIB) uses cutting- edge and proprietary technologies to engineer biologically inspired materials for applications in the biomedical sector.

Work concerns the design and the optimization of precision 3D micro-fabricated platforms by exploiting advanced mask-less lithography techniques such as 2photon lithography, 2D laser lithography and ICP-RIE.

The project will also address cell behaviour under complex 3D topographies.

The ideal candidate has a consolidated experience in the design of 2D and 3D layout,laser lithography techniques and cell culture. Expertise on chemical functionalization will also be taken in great consideration.

Candidates having a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Physics or related disciplines are encouraged to apply.

The candidate will undertake research activities in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art technologies including, among others, 2-photon mask-less photolithography, 2D laser mask-less photolithography, ICP-RIE, multiphoton and STED microscopy, SEM, TEM, scanning force microscopy.

Please send your application, containing a motivation letter, the main achievements during PhD and Post Doc period, CV and 2 reference letters to quoting "Post doc Naples CB 70469" in the email subject.

Please apply by June 20, 2016.
