Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT (www.iit.it) is opening a post-doctoral position on Printed Electronic Circuits for Plastic Smart Labels, with the aim of developing fully functional prototypes that fulfill basic requirements for future applications in the field of cheap and disposable large-area electronics and their mass production.
The selected candidate will design and fabricate high-performance complementary polymer electronic circuits on plastic, by combining different printing techniques (inkjet, wired bar coating, etc..). The circuits will realize basic electronic functionalities in flexible and large-area electronic prototypes. The candidate will specifically focus on reducing the circuit footprint, reducing the operation voltage and power consumption and improve the process yield to a level where a scale of integration of hundreds of transistors is feasible. Hybrid approaches, involving inorganic conductors and/or dielectrics, as well as different direct-writing techniques may be considered.
Eligible applicants are required to have a PhD either in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or Engineering (Energy, Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Electronics).
Proven experimental expertise in organic electronics device fabrication is a minimum pre-requisite. In particular, expertise in printed electronics will be considered a strong asset, as well as in electronic characterization of circuits. The successful candidate is enthusiastic in developing new electronic applications and is naturally interested in technology transfer activities. He/she is fluent in English.
The closing date for applications is August 16, 2017 and applications, including a cover letter, CV and two reference letters should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting “Post Doc Printed Electronic Circuits for Plastic Smart Labels Prototypes CB 73773” in the subject line.
Salary will be commensurate to qualifications and experience and in line with international standards.
This research activity will be carried out in the “Printed and Molecular Electronics” Research Line under the supervision of Dr. Mario Caironi, located at the “Center for Nano Science and Technology” of the Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Milan (Italy).
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 application from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nano-biotechnologies.
