Post-Doc Position Hybrid organic/inorganic photovoltaic devices

BC: 68497

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 Post-doc 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”; Nanotecnologie molecolari per la salute dell'uomo e l'ambiente; project code PON02_00563_3316357; CUP: B31C12001230005; PI: Prof. Giuseppe Gigli)

IIT has recently launched a strategic line of activities focused on the development of hybrid organic/inorganic solar cells. The exploration of novel materials and device architectures based on polymeric/organic materials, colloidal nanocrystals and hybrid perovskites is one of the pivotal research fields. Main issue is the understanding of the processes and physical properties lying at the root of these devices in order to improve their efficiency. The aim of the activity is the development of material at the nanometer scale to generate new photovoltaic materials and systems that could potentially lead to the realization of low-cost solar cells.

The research program will focus on solution-processing of innovative solar cells, and addresses the following topics:

  1. The preparation of novel organic/inorganic composites
  2. The development of new deposition techniques and approaches to the fabrication and optimization of device architectures. 
  3. The study of physical, electrical and morphological properties of such materials/devices. 

Ideal candidates should hold a PhD in Chemistry, Material Science and related subjects, with strong communication, team-working skills.  Previous experience in the field of fabrication and characterization of functional nanomaterials and organic/hybrid optoelectronic devices is required.

The candidate will be highly independent and will work in a young, multidisciplinary and dynamic environment. The successful candidate will operate in a world-class laboratory equipped with a wide range of both fabrication and characterization facilities devoted to the realization of novel photovoltaic devices and to their photophysical and electrical 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. He/she should strive to realize good results with his/her team to contribute to the broaden goals of the unit.  

The application should include a statement of research interests, CV with publication list and at least 2 letters of recommendation to 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.
