Post doc in the area of smart materials – nanoengineered materials for cell and tissue cultures

BC: 69445

The Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT-www.iit.it) 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, Rome and Trento.

The IIT 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.

1 Post doctoral position is available at CABHC@CRIB for highly motivated candidates in the area of nanoengineered platforms for cell and tissue control. The project aims at designing and fabricating synthetic material surfaces able to promote and guide the generation of tissues in vitro through the control of the cell-material interactions occurring at the nanoscale. Particular importance will be given to the understanding of the interplay between adhesion-cytoskeleton with cell fate and tissue features.

The ideal candidate should have a consolidated experience in materials nano- and micropatterning, cell cultures, cell analysis and a good expertise in microscopic techniques (fluorescence, confocal, SEM).

Candidates who hold a PhD in Material Science and Technology, Chemical Engineering or related disciplines are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will undertake research activities in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art technologies including, among others, Multiphoton and STED microscopes, SEM, TEM, AFM and microCT.

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

Applications containing a motivation letter, the main achievements during the PhD period, a short CV and at least 2 reference letters should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Application deadline: March 5, 2014.
