Designation/Position- Postdoctoral Position in Italy
Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Italy invites application for Postdoctoral Position in Italy from eligible and interested candidates
About- Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT (www.iit.it) is opening a post-doctoral position In Organic Bio – Electronics in the framework of the ERC Project “Light Induced Cell modulation by Exogenous Organic Semiconductors, LINCE” (Grant Agreement Nr. 803621), focused on the development of light sensitive devices for optical modulation of cellular activity. This research activity will be carried out at the “Center for Nano Science and Technology” ([email protected] Milano).
Research/Job Area- Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or Engineering (Energy, Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Electronics)
Project Title- Bio-Organic Electronics
Location- Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Italy
Eligible applicants are required to have a PhD in either Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or Engineering (Energy, Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Electronics), must be fluent in English and have a marked aptitude to work in team.
Previous knowledge and experimental expertise in the characterization of organic bioelectronics devices is required. Laboratory skills in organic devices fabrication, photoelectrochemistry, optical spectroscopy and microscopy techniques, as well as in cell culturing and electrophysiology, represent preferential titles.
Job/Position Description- The candidate will study the photochemical and photophysical processes occurring at the interface between organic semiconductors and in vitro living cells, and he/she will design, fabricate and optimize device architectures based on conjugated polymers, with the final goal to optically regulate the activity of different models of living cells, from their genesis to proliferation, from differentiation to specific functions.
He/she will work in a highly multidisciplinary research team, comprising material scientists, physicists, engineers, biologists and biotechnologists, and will have access to state-of-the-art facilities for devices fabrication and characterization.
How to Apply- Eligible candidate can send their applications, including a cover letter, a detailed CV and contacts of at least two referees should be sent to [email protected] quoting “Post doc in Organic BioElectronics CB 76286” in the subject line.
