Applications are invited for the following four post doctoral positions:

Research in the area of smart materials

The post doctoral positions are 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 improved macroscopic properties, i.e. mechanical, surface and transport properties. In particular, the research activities concern the production of synthetic/inorganic nanoparticles and the development of chemical routes to functionalize them. The research activities are part of the "Implementation of bio and nanotechnologies for the production of novel leather goods" project, granted by MIUR, within the Smart Materials platform at the Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Health Care of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT@CRIB) in Naples. The candidate will undertake research activities in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art technologies including optical microscopy, multiphoton and STED microscopy, dynamic light scattering, ellipsometry, SEM, TEM, scanning force microscopy.

Post doc position in nanomedicine

A post doctoral position is available for a highly motivated candidate in the field of production and characterization of nanoparticles for nanomedicine applications with particular attention to the realization of polymeric capsules (polymersomes) to transport bioactive molecules in a viable and effective way to specific body districts. The project is within the Trans-Endothelial Nanoshuttles (TeNs) platform at the Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Health Care of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT@CRIB) in Naples (abcnapoli.iit.it) and focuses on the exploitation of a proprietary technology to produce stable and reliable degradable nanocarriers for transport of bioactive molecules. The intended goal is produce novel devices to efficiently cross the blood brain barrier and deliver drugs in a controlled fashion. In detail, the candidate will be involved in the preparation of nanoparticles and their characterization by a whole set of state-of-the-art techniques including particle tracking, STED, dynamic light scattering, SEM, TEM, scanning probe microscopy.

Ideal candidate should hold a PhD in chemical engineering or related discipline and a past experience in a research area related to engineering, material science, characterization and manipulation of nanoparticles applied in biopolymer science, immunology and/or drug delivery, along with a strong academic record and high motivation for creative research. This is an experimental position therefore previous working experience in wet-lab environment and a background in the biomaterials field and on the use of analytical tool would be considered an advantage.

Interested applicants should submit their CV, a statement of research interests, and the names of at least two referees in electronic form to Enza Torino (This email address is being protected from spambots.
