CNR-NANOTEC (the National Research Council Institute of Nanotechnology, www.nanotec.cnr.it, www.youtube.com/watch?v=I48uqkEZUUc) is leading a new, long-term research programme to foster translation to the clinical practice of advances in Nanotechnology and Photonics by establishing a direct interface between basic and clinical scientists. One of the main areas of activity is in Neurodegenerative Diseases, in particular methods for non-invasive pre-symptomatic diagnosis and human in vitro models of neurodegeneration for preclinical testing of new treatment.
We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and outstanding Post-doctoral candidate for a research position based in Lecce in the field of bioprinting technologies.
The position is for 1 year, renewable upon positive evaluation of the activities carried out through the year. Salary will be on the CNR scales, according to qualifications and experience, from a minimum gross annual salary of 22 k€ to a maximum of 26 k€ (net monthly pay of 1619 € - 1913 €).
Putative starting date: May 15th / June 1st.
Please submit your motivation letter, CV with the names and contacts of at least two scientific referees and a resumé of your achievements over the past 4-5 years to the attention of Prof. Lorenzo Moroni, who will be the main supervisor of the Post-doc fellow, at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com quoting the reference “Bioprinting @Nanotec”.
Living in Lecce
Lecce, the capital of Salento, is both a city of history and art: its elegant, cozy historic center showcases remnants from the Messapians to the Middle Ages, although it is particularly renowned for its baroque architecture (a Florence of the Baroque era) built in the characteristic soft local stone (pietra leccese) that dazzles in the sunshine. However, Lecce is also a capital of Italian cooking built on a local tradition of simple ingredients (“cucina povera”) and robust red wines (Negroamaro and Primitivo), and sports a buzzing bar scene. Century-old olive groves stretch over the countryside, whereas a short distance away are wild beaches with a clear azure sea famous for diving and picturesque rocky caves.

We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and outstanding Post-doctoral candidate for a research position based in Lecce in the following area:
Bioprinting based on temperature- and/or light-responsive bioinks for the development and characterization of 3D in vitro models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The candidate must possess experience in bioprinting technologies, in particular extrusion-based bioprinting, and 3D cell culture (primary, stem cell, iPSC). The candidate will focus on setting up the biofabrication procedures and performing functionality assessment, through cellular and molecular biological assays, of the biofabricated constructs. Any expertise on the following fields will be considered a plus: i) VAT photopolymerization; ii) iPSC characterization and differentiation; iii) printable hydrogel design and characterization; iv) organ-on-chip systems.
The candidate must possess experience in bioprinting technologies.
