Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT - was founded with the objective of promoting Italy’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. Research at IIT covers scientific areasof 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.
Thecandidate to this position will work on a challenging project in the fields of Plasmonics and nano-Optics.
The main aim will be the development of novel optical methods able to interface biological tissues and cells providing a deep insight in physico-chemical processes of biological interest, as well as the development of innovative plasmonic biosensors.
We offer a two-year post-doctoral position in Genoa with competitive annual remuneration depending on the experience of the candidate.
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with a strong background in theoretical calculations and modeling of plasmonic and photonic nanostructures.
Candidates havea Ph.D. in physics, engineering or related disciplines.
Previous experience in modeling platforms (e.g., COMSOL or Lumerical) is expected.
Expertise in nanofabrication will be considered a plus.
The post-doc researcher will be in charge of designing novel optical methods mainly based on nano-plasmonics and devoted to the manipulation of the electro-magnetic field at the nanoscales.
Please send your CV with 2 reference letters to firstname.lastname@example.org quoting Postdoctoral positions in Plasmonics and Nano-Photonics (theoretical) CB 71985 in the subject line before September 30, 2016.
