The Center for Advanced Biomaterials for Healthcare at CRIB (CABHC@CRIB- http://abcnapoli.iit.it/ ), Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) Naples, uses cutting edge and proprietary technologies to engineer biologically inspired materials for applications in the biomedical sector.
We are looking for 1 postdoctoral candidate with strong experimental experience, who will collaborate in a project on the fabrication and complete characterization of biodegradable polymer microdevices with controlled release of molecules. We seek a highly motivated and creative scientist who will work in a very dynamic and interdisciplinary environment.
The activities will concerns the development of biodegradable polymer microdevices by exploiting soft lithography methods and advanced mask-less lithography techniques such as 2photon lithography, 2D laser lithography and ICP-RIE. Microdevices will be characterized in terms of encapsulation capability, mechanical properties, kinetic release in in vitro and ex-vivo models.
The ideal candidate should have expertise on the design of 2D and 3D layout and on working in clean room. He/she should have experience on the fabrication and testing of polymer microdevices. Expertise on the use of 2-photon lithography, ICP-RIE and 2D laser writing will also be taken in great consideration.
Candidates who hold a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Material Science, Physics or related disciplines are encouraged to apply.
The candidate will undertake research activities in laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art technologies including, among others, 2-photon mask-less photolithography, 2D laser mask-less photolithography, ICP-RIE, multiphoton and STED microscopy, SEM, TEM, scanning force microscopy.
Applications, including a motivation letter, the main achievements during PhD and Post Doc period, a short CV and contact information of 2 referees, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating "Post Doc 73103" in the email subject.
Please apply by December 20, 2017.
