Post-doctoral position in printed electronics

CB: 71673

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia ( was founded with the objective of promoting Italy’s technological development and further education in science and technology. Therefore, IIT is committed to achieving its scientific program which follows the primary inspirational principle of integrating basic scientific research with the development of technical applications.

The Center for Nanoscience and Technology (CNST@POLIMI) in Milan is part of the network established by IIT in close collaboration with Italian academic institutions. Research at CNST@POLIMI focuses on material science and spans the whole gamut of R&D, from conception and realization of a new material to its comprehensive characterization through to its final application in devices.

The areas of excellence at CNST@POLIMI are Material Chemistry, Molecular Optolectronics, Printed Electronics, Nanotechnology Fabrication and Optical – Photophysical - Morphological and Theoretical Characterization.

One of the leading activities carried out at CNST@POLIMI concerns Printed and Molecular Electronics and, more specifically, focuses on the development of all-printed organic-hybrid opto-electronic devices.

CNST@POLIMI is seeking 1 Post-doc to be involved in a research project focussed onPrinted Polymer and Hybrid Electronics for High-Frequency Applicationswithin the activities of the ERC project “HEROIC” (Grant Agreement 638059 – ERC 2014 STG).

The main targets will be:

  • design, fabrication and characterization of organic and hybrid complementary transistors printed on flexible substrates;
  • improvement of the frequency performances of all-printed and direct-written devices;
  • design, fabrication and characterization of fast organic and hybrid complementary integrated circuits (ICs).

The post holder will be directly involved in working within a highly multidisciplinary team, which will benefit from an expertise in printed organic electronics and organic semiconductors processing. The project will be managed in collaboration with international institutions providing high performance, solution-processable organic and hybrid semiconductors suitable for the fabrication of high mobility thin-film transistors.

Ideal candidates have a PhD in either engineering, physics or related subjects and practical laboratory experience in the fabrication of organic semiconductors devices (e.g. transistors) or other solution-processable devices. Basic knowledge of complementary logic circuits and experience in printing technologies are an important asset as is knowledge of ac characterization of devices. The ideal candidate is highly motivated, enthusiastic, fluent in English and with good interpersonal skills.

Interested applicants should submit electronically a statement of research interest, CV with publication list and names of at least 2 referees to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by December 10, 2015.
