Post-Doc Position for “Numerical Modeling of Plasmon Systems for Neuroscience Applications”

IIT - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

Lecce, Italy

The Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies (CBN), an IIT Network Center based in Arnesano, Lecce, is opening 1 Postdoctoral position in the area of “Physics-based New Technologies for Neuroscience Research”, related to the FET OPEN Grant NANO-BRIGHT GA Nr.828972 (PIs Prof. Massimo De Vittorio, Dr. Ferruccio Pisanello and Dr. Cristian Ciracì).

The main objective of this research line is to develop advanced plasmonic-based neural endoscopes to study and treat pathological states of the brain. Ad hoc plasmonic structures will be embedded on a tapered fiber probe for spatial-resolved SERS endoscopy.

The selected candidate will be integrated in a highly interdisciplinary environment in a young and highly motivated research group, working in state-of-the-art facilities. He/she will participate in the development of new all-optical neural interfaces, with a particular focus on the analysis of electromagnetic properties and numerical design of nano-optics elements.

Highly motivated and talented candidates with backgrounds in photonics, plasmonics and optics are invited to apply for the advertised position. We are looking for a scientist with the following competences/skills:

  • Experience in numerical design and development of photonics devices (Fiber Optics-based devices, Plasmonics, Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy)
  • Experience in using frequency and/or time-domain simulation methods and related software, including COMSOL Multiphysics
  • PhD in physics, nanotechnologies, biophysics, photonics, engineering or related areas.
  • Proven track record of publications in the relevant technical areas and projects.

All the above competences/skills are desirable although not mandatory. Strong organizational skills, creativity, motivation and communication skills (oral and written) are highly required. Finally, proficiency in English is essential.
