Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, IIT (http://www.iit.it), is a private law Foundation, created with special Government Law no. 269 dated September 30th 2003 with the objective of promoting Italy’s technological development and higher education in science and technology. Research at IIT is carried out in highly innovative scientific fields with state-of-the-art technology.
Highly motivated and talented candidates with backgrounds in nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotechnology, nanochemistry, clinical diagnostics, biochemistry, bioengineering or related areas are invited to apply for the advertised positions.
The project objective is to develop novel low-cost rapid biosensors and devices for applications in point-of-care clinical diagnostics and on-field environmental monitoring, using nanoparticles and functional biomolecules such as antibody, enzymes, DNAzymes/ribozymes and aptamers.
Applicants are expected to have hands-on experience in surface modification of nanoparticles and their characterization, as well as their application to optical or rapid-kit-type detection of biomolecules or diagnostics of biomarkers.
Additional experience in microbiology will be a plus but not mandatory.
