We look for three excellent and highly motivated young researchers (at PhD or post-doc levels) with strong background in:
ANALOG ELECTRONICS (1 position, 1 year)
MEMS (1 position, 1 year)
ZnO nanowires (wet-chemistry) fabrication and characterization (1 position, 1 year).
Extensions of the grants are possible.
The successfulcandidateswill join a large cross-disciplinary research effort for increasing the efficiency of piezoelectric nanogenerators [1-4] by improving modeling, nano-fabrication, devices, and electronics. The research will be supported by Italian and FP7 projects led by Dr. Christian Falconi [4-10].
Salary is about €1000 per month (after taxes) for PhD students and ranges from €1400 to €2500 per month (after taxes) for post-doc students.
