Postdoc position within the Graphene Flagship Project - [ Postdoc ]

Added on: 05/11/2019 - Expires on 19/11/2019

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia is looking for one Post-doctoral scientist to carry out synthesis and studies of van der Waals heterostructures (vdWh). The successful candidate will work in the 2D Materials Engineering Research Line, in the framework of the Future & Emerging Technologies flagship project on graphene and other 2D crystals, Graphene Flagship ( funded by the European Commission with Grant Agreement n. 785219.

The selected candidate will be implementing novel growth techniques for the synthesis of bidimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) on other 2D materials and will be investigating the properties of the resulting vdWh by spectroscopic and microscopic techniques.

Eligible applicants must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Engineering or related fields. Previous experience in synthesis of 2D materials will be considered a plus. Excellent English communication skills, creativity and marked enthusiasm for research are mandatory. Selected candidate will join Camilla Coletti and the 2D Materials Engineering group of IIT located in Pisa. Salary and benefits are in line with international standards.

The closing date for applications is November 19th, 2019. Please send your application, including a cover letter, a CV outlining experience and qualifications and name and contacts of 2 referees via e-mail to quoting “PostDoc Graphene Flagship CB 77761” in the subject line.

CNI is back in operation!

From today 4th of May CNI has started its way to go back to normal operation. Following the recommended safety procedures for COVID-19, the researchers started their activities in the TEM, Raman spectroscopy, 2D materials growth and characterization laboratories. Soon chemical synthesis and nanoteranostic will follow. The number of researchers that enter the lab every day is still limited but as the things will go better it will growth to normal condition. We hope also that soon PhD students and master student can join us prosecuting their thesis projects.
