The Photonic Nanomaterials group at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia is looking for one Post-doctoral scientist to develop novel device preparation techniques based on micro and nano fabrication tools.
The successful candidate will work in the newly created Photonic Nanomaterials research line within the Nanomaterials research domain.
In particular, this position is funded by European Research Council (ERC), Grant Agreement n current aim of the research line is to fabricate novel light-emitting diodes based on a single semiconductor nanocrystal, thus obtaining an electrically driven single-photon source.
The selected candidate will develop novel device fabrication techniques based on multi-functional substrates obtained via optical- and electron-beam lithography, and patterning of semiconductor films.
In addition to research duties, the candidate is expected to contribute to the supervision of PhD students hired within the project framework and engage in collaborations with other peers from the Clean-Room facility.
Eligible applicants must have a in Electronic Engineering, Physics, Materials Science or related fields. The ideal candidate has experience in working in a Clean-Room environment, optical- and / or electron-beam lithography and other micro / nano- fabrication tools (Atomic Layer Deposition, Reactive-Ion Etching, etc ).
Excellent English communication skills, creativity and independent thinking are mandatory. The selected candidate will join Dr.
Francesco Di Stasio and his research team located in IIT Central Research Laboratories, Genoa.
Salary will be commensurate to qualifications and experience and in line with international standards.
