Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT (www.iit.it) is opening a Post-Doctoral position regarding processing of graphene, 2d crystals and hybrid systems for printable and flexible (Opto)electronic and energy devices.
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 currently available to work on the production and processing of graphene, two-dimensional (2d) crystals and hybrid structures with colloidal nanocrystals for printable and flexible optoelectronics and energy devices.
The aim is to develop a new class of flexible optoelectronic and energy devices embedding the optical, electronic and electrochemical functionalities of graphene and 2d crystals. This is an ambitious frontier research program, with a strong interdisciplinary nature, across engineering, physical, chemical and soft matter sciences, and will require the optimization and device implementation of inks based on graphene and 2d crystals.
This research activity will be carried out at IIT Graphene Labs (http://graphene.iit.it) and will be embedded in the Future & Emerging Technologies flagship project on graphene and other 2d crystals supported by the European Union (http://www.graphene-flagship.eu/GF/index.php) for the 2013-2023 period.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science or Electrical Engineering. Preference will be given to candidates with proven expertise in preparation and optimisation of inks based on graphene and 2d crystals, as well as roll to roll manufacturing.
Salary and benefits are in line with international standards.
The closing date for applications is June 30, 2014 and applications, including a cover letter, CV and the names of two referees should be sent via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org quoting "Graphene" in the subject line.
