Postdoctoral position in in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation of functionalized nanovectors for theranostics

BC: 70477

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) is a non-profit institution having as its primary goal the promotion of Italy's technological development and the creation of scientific knowledge. Research at IIT is carried out in highly innovative scientific fields with state-of-the-art technology.

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.

 A post-doctoral position is available for highly motivated candidates in Nanobiotech division at the Center for Nanotechnology Innovation (CNI) in Pisa.

We are seeking highly motivated and dedicated candidates with backgrounds in nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, biochemistry, biology or related areas to carry out research on th above illustrated  topic, namely in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation of functionalized nanovectors for theranostics. The nature of the project is multidisciplinary and aims at the development and application of novel nanomedicine tools for theranostics.

The successful candidate will play a significant role in the development of in-vitro and in-vivo testing of:

  • nano-vectors for the controlled release of drugs in specific targets
  • smart contrast agents based on targeting nano-devices
  •  Identification of biomolecular targets for the engineering of improved nano-vectors.

Post-doc : Growth and scanning probe characterization of two-dimensional crystals

BC: 69018

The Center for Nanotechnology Innovation IIT@NEST in Pisa (Italy) is inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellow to join a multidisciplinary group of scientists working in the area of “Growth and scanning probe characterization of two-dimensional crystals”.

IIT@NEST is an interdisciplinary R&D center within the network of Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) devoted to investigating and exploiting phenomena at the nanoscale. IIT is a private law foundation jointly established by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research and the Ministry of Economy and Finance, with the aim of promoting excellence in both basic and applied research.
We are seeking a highly motivated and dedicated postdoctoral fellow to work on a research project relating to “Growth and scanning probe characterization of two-dimensional crystals”.

Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are an emerging and appealing class of 2D materials with the potential to exhibit unprecedented electronic, chemical, optical and magnetic properties. In order to implement in a scalable manner devices based on such 2D films their large area growth needs to be implemented and their fundamental properties investigated.

In the course of this project the successful candidate will synthetize atomically thin TMDs films and other 2D materials by means of chemical vapor deposition. Particular focus will also be on the characterization of the structural and electronic properties of such crystals via optical and scanning-probe techniques, such as Atomic Force Microscopy, micro-Raman and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Specifically, STM will be used to study 2D materials and their interfaces with other 2D films down to the atomic level.
