Biomaterials and in vitro MRI

B.C. 70810

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT – with its headquarters in Genoa (Italy) is a non-profit institution with the primary goal of creating and disseminating scientific knowledge and strengthening Italy's technological competitiveness. Our research areas cover scientific topics of high innovative content representing the most advanced frontiers of modern technology,with wide application opportunities in various fields ranging from medicine to industry, from computer science to robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnology.

IIT has created an IIT-Network of centers within Italian research institutions based in Lecce, Milan, Naples, Pisa, Turin, Parma, Trento and Rome.

The Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare at CRIB (CABHC@CRIB; Naples, Italy) uses cutting edge technologies to engineer biologically inspired material platforms for applications in the biomedical sector.

Applications are open for a post-doctoral research position in imaging of magnetic nanostructures. The research activity is part of "BERSAGLI – Bersagli, sonde e segnali in terapia diagnostica - POR Campania FESR 2007/2013 O.O. 2.1 - CUP B25C13000310007- ID SMILE 022" project granted by Regione Campania and included in TENS platform at CABHC@CRIB in Naples.

The successful candidate will be working in the laboratory of IIT@CRIB to develop advanced acquisitions and analysis techniques for in vitro MRI. This research will be carried out on the benchtop relaxometer installed within IIT@CRIB laboratories. Deep Knowledge on biomaterials and on at least one protocol for nanoparticles preparation is required. In addition, independent users of Electron microscopies and High Pressure Homogenizers will be preferred.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated researcher with a desire to begin an independent career related to or involving in MRI field.

The ideal candidate would hold a Ph.D. degree in Biology or Biomedical Engineering, or a related field. However, we will consider candidates of other scientific backgrounds.

Candidates with a basic knowledge if signal processing backgrounds and minimal imaging experience are still encouraged to apply. Candidates should be highly motivated and interested in working in an interdisciplinary team.

Interested applicants should submit their CV electronically outlining experience and qualifications, list of publications, a statement of research interests and plans and the names of at least two referees to This email address is being protected from spambots.
