Fellow Position – Fabrication of large area photoelectrochemical cells

BC 68499

The Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (CBN@UniLE) in Lecce is activating a procedure for the selection of n. 1 Fellow position to work in the framework of the national project “MAAT”  (PON R&C 2007-2013 -  n. 713/Ric. 29/10/2010 –project’s title: Molecular NAnotechnology for HeAlth and EnvironmenT “MAAT”; project’s code PON02_00563_3316357; CUP: B31C12001230005; PI: Prof. Giuseppe Gigli )

In 2009 IIT started up a multifaceted line of strategic research activities on dye sensitized solar cells (DSCs) that covers a wide range of scientific and technological issues from the understanding of physical phenomena at nanoscale to the development of large scale solutions for building integration. This research line has been structured to address the most crucial and meaningful aspects concerning fabrication technologies and cell architectures as well as to provide an accurate analysis of both the electric and electrochemical key features of the DSCs.

In this framework, in collaboration with project leader and senior researchers, the successful candidate will set-up, plan and carry out the experimental work necessary for the photoelectrochemical devices fabrication and characterization while being part of a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers.

The main aim of the work will be to extract the best performances for new class of materials which are going to be developed in the lab, to set-up and optimize suitable deposition techniques to fabricate large area modules and to test device stability under heat and light soaking conditions.

The successful candidate will operate in a world-class laboratory equipped with a full spectrum of both fabrication and characterization facilities devoted to the realization of novel photoelectrochemical devices and to their photophysical, electrical and electrochemical characterization. 

Good team working skills in an international environment are also required as well as fluent speaking and writing skills in English, which is essential. Travelling abroad is part of the research work and could include some period of time spent in a different city/country.

The candidate should motivate himself/herself to improve both routine operations and research activities and he/she should strive to realize good results with his/her team to contribute to the broaden goals of the unit.        

The successful candidate for this post should have a strong background in disciplines such as Materials Science, Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.

Applications, including a statement of research interests and a CV with a detailed description of academic skills, should be sent electronically to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Please apply before June 30th, 2013.

The Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) - was established in 2005 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 endeavor 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.

In order to comply with the Italian law (art. 23 of Privacy Law of the Italian Legislative Decree n. 196/03), we have to kindly ask the candidate to give his/her consent to allow IIT to process his/her personal data.
