Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) was established with the objective of promoting Italy’s technological development and further education in science and technology. Its scientific program integrates fundamental research and the development of technical applications as a major inspirational principle. Our research covers scientific areas of high innovative content, representing the most advanced frontiers of modern technology, from medicine to industry, from computer science to robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnology.
The Nanochemistry Department, headed by director Liberato Manna, is active in the latter domain, developing a broad range of nanomaterials. Next to materials synthesis, our teams target applications in catalysis, health care (cancer therapy, targeted drug release), photonics (light emission and modulation), and energy harvesting and storage.
We welcome applications for one fellowship position focusing on “Colloidal synthesis, characterization and application of nanomaterials”.
The candidate’s research activity will focus on the following main objectives:
Eligible candidates should have a recent Master’s Degree in Chemistry or Materials Science. No PhD title is required.
