Postdoctoral Position in “Nanofabrication Technologies for Extreme Light-matter Interaction”

IIT - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

Genoa, Italy

YOUR TEAM

You’d be working in a multicultural and multi-disciplinary group, where experienced physicists, chemists material scientists, and optical spectroscopists collaborate, each with their own expertise, to carry out common research.

The Clean Room Facility is coordinated by Dr. Andrea Toma, who has extensive experience in the nanofabrication and nanophotonic domains. The research will aim at exploring novel hybrid systems with unique chemical and physical properties. Within this context, the activities will extensively focus on device manufacturing and testing.

Within the team, your main responsibilities will be:

  • Fabrication and characterization of nanophotonic architectures, with the specific aim of realizing strongly coupled hybridization between light and semiconductor nano-crystals.
  • Nano-crystals manipulation, positioning and characterization. Comprehensive investigation of their structural/morphological properties.

This open position/research is financed by the European Research Council within the project REPLY - REshaping Photocatalysis via Light-Matter hYbridization in Plasmonic Nanocavities GA 101002422.

WHAT WOULD MAKE YOU SHINE

  • A PhD in physics, material science or related disciplines.
  • Proficiency in device fabrication/clean room activities (electron beam lithography, thin film deposition, ion beam milling, nano-crystal manipulation).
  • Documented experience in the realization of large area photonic architectures (plasmonic structures, metasurfaces, photonic crystals etc.) and their optical characterization.
  • A strong publication record.
  • The ability to properly report, organize and publish research data.
  • Documented experience in coaching junior scientists.
  • Good command in spoken and written English.

EXTRA AWESOME

  • Experience in optical techniques for material characterization (e.g. UV-Vis-NIR micro-spectroscopy, ellipsometry, infrared and Raman spectroscopy, etc.)
  • Knowledge of software packages for designing, analyzing and optimizing nanophotonic systems (e.g. Comsol Multiphysics, CST Studio Suite, Lumerical)
  • Good communication skills
  • Strong problem solving attitude
  • High motivation to learn
  • Spirit of innovation and creativity
  • Good in time and priority management
  • Ability to work in a challenging and international environment
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively in a highly interdisciplinary environment
