Post doc position

BC: 68445

The Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) with headquarters in Genova (Italy), is a non-profit institution with the primary goal of creating and disseminating scientific knowledge and strengthening Italy's technological competitiveness. Current IIT scientific program has a strong multidisciplinary character, merging expertise from different platforms from neuroscience to drug discovery, from nanotechnologies to computation.

IIT has created an IIT-Network of centers at Italian research institutions in Lecce, Milan, Naples, Pisa, Turin, Parma, Trento, and Rome. The Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare (CABHC@CRIB), in Naples, uses cutting edge technologies to engineer biologically inspired material platforms for applications in the biomedical sector.

Applications are invited for the following post doctoral position: Research in the area of smart materials - Leather Science and Technology

1 Post doctoral position is available for highly motivated candidates in a project concerning the implementation of nanotechnologies in the leather industry. The project aims at exploiting proprietary processes to conjugate nanometric objects with animal dermis in order to produce leather goods with novel properties and functions, i.e. mechanical, surface and transport properties. In particular, the research activities concern the development of new processes to tan nanoparticle-dermis composites along with their chemical/physical characterization.
