Post-Doctoral position in Organic BioElectronics - [ Postdoc ]

Workplace: Milano, IIT@Polimi
Added on: 30/11/2018 - Expires on: 15/12/2018

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT ( is opening a post-doctoral position on Organic BioElectronics in the framework of the European Project H2020 “SiMBiT” GA 824946, dedicated to the development of Single molecule bio-electronic smart system arrays for clinical testing. Within such multidisciplinary and intersectoral project, IIT will develop an array of sensors based on water gated organic transistors compatibly with large area manufacturing processes, a key enabling aspect for future commercialization. 

The candidate will fabricate polymer and hybrid devices by means of a combination of large-area compatible printing and direct-writing techniques. He will interact with partners that are active on the single sensor development and optimization, will transpose the discrete device properties in an architecture compatible with replication in an array and will actively interact with companies to ensure scalability and to integrate the array in a full electronic system.

This research activity will be carried out in collaboration with the Printed and Molecular Electronics Research Line (, under the supervision of Dr. Mario Caironi, at the “Center for Nano Science and Technology” of Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Milan (Italy).

Eligible applicants are required to have a PhD in either Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or Engineering (Energy, Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Electronics).

Proven experimental expertise in the development of bioelectronics devices, especially based on organic semiconductors will be considered an asset, as well as laboratory skills in solution processing/printing of semiconductors and devices fabrication and characterization. The successful candidate will be fluent in English.

The closing date for applications is 15/12/2018 and applications, including a cover letter, a detailed CV and contacts of two referees should be sent to quoting “Post doc in Organic BioElectronics CB 76192 ” in the subject line.

Salary will be commensurate to qualifications and experience and in line with international standards.

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.
