Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia – IIT is opening a postdoctoral position at the Centre for Sustainable Future Technologies (CSFT) in Turin, in the framework of the regional project STAMP (Sviluppo Tecnologico dell’Additive Manufacturing in Piemonte) funded by the Regione Piemonte with Grant POR FESR Piemonte 2014/2020 “Fabbrica Intelligente” - (project code 312-15; EPNZ005001).
The selected candidate will work on a project aiming at the development of new Additive Manufacturing (AM) machines for larger components and faster production; application of AM for the production of parts for aeronautics, aerospace, automotive and tooling fields; development of new AM materials and optimization of process and post-process conditions.
Eligible applicants must hold a PhD degree in Physics, Material Science or Chemistry, a strong background in R&D collaborations with industries, and be interested in research focused on nanostructured materials. Previous experience in research projects and in industrial R&D will be highly considered.
IIT was established in 2003 and successfully created the large scale infrastructure in Genova, a network of 10 state of the art laboratories countrywide, recruited an international staff of about 1100
people from more than 50 countries. IIT's research endeavour focuses on high-tech and innovation, representing the forefront of technology with possible application from medicine to industry, computer science, robotics, life sciences and nanobiotechnologies.
The main goal of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) division is the development of advanced novel materials to fabricate lightweight functional systems, passing through a bio-inspired design, complex in their structure, shape, size, hierarchy, surface and materials usage. A joint initiative with Politecnico di Torino is enforced.
The whole group conducts research in all facets of additive manufacturing processes such as:
