International PhD/Postdoctoral Positions for Nano2Fun ITN Project in Italy, 2013/14

European Commission through FP7-Marie Curie Actions is funding Nano2Fun ITN Project. This project has 12 PhD Positions (Early Stage Reasercher –ESR) and 5 Post-Doc Positions (Experienced Researcher –ER). PhD positions are available for 3 years and Post-Doc positions are available up to one year. Researchers of any nationality are eligible for these positions. At the time of recruitment by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date.. Nanochemistry of molecular materials for 2-photon functional applications (Nano2Fun) is an Initial Training Network (ITN) Project funded by the European Commission through FP7-Marie Curie Actions. Nano2Fun’s main target is the education of a new generation of scientists for the development, via breakthrough research, of two technologically relevant applications, namely two-photon microscopy (2PM) and two-photon polymerization (2PP), with enormous applicative potential in bioimaging, biomedicine and rapid prototyping techniques. Nano2Fun proposes a coordinated effort of 16 first-level and world-recognized research laboratories in the academic and private sectors, located in 10 different countries.. Positions are open for pursuing PhD/Postdoctoral candidates in Italy.
