Post doctoral position in the area of lab-on-chip for diagnostic applications

CB: 68590

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 recently 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 at CRIB (CABHC@CRIB), Naples, uses cutting edge technologies to engineer biologically inspired material platforms for applications in the biomedical sector.

Applications are invited for the following position:

1 post-doctoral position (max 2 year experience) is available for a highly motivated candidate in the field of microfabrication and microfluidics devoted to the development of diagnostic tools.

The research activity is part of MICROMAP PON project granted by MIUR, included in D4 platform at CABHC@CRIB in Naples and focuses on the exploitation of a proprietary technology to target/detect prognostic/diagnostic biomolecules.

In detail, the candidate will be involved in microfabrication, material processing and characterization as well as set-up and assessment of microfluidic devices for diagnostic applications. The activity will be supported by a whole tool of state-of-the-art techniques including micromilling, laser 2D, ICP-RIE, metal evaporator, as well as  cryo-TEM, SEM, XPS, FTIR-ATR, micro-RAMAN and ellipsometer .

The ideal candidate should hold a PhD in chemical or materials engineering or discipline related to lab-on-chip applications; a past experience in microfluidics and/or microfabrication is also requested. Familiarity with PCR or other genetic testing in microfluidic devices will be considered preferential. A strong academic record and high motivation for creative research is required.

Position and salary will be commensurate to CV and experience of the candidate.

Interested applicants should submit their CV, a statement of research interests, and the names of at least two referees in electronic form to Filippo Causa (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
