Open positions

We are always looking for highly motivated researchers at both PhD and post-doc levels. Currently we do not have funds to hire new PhD and post-docs but if you are interested in working with us and you have a good academic record please contact us. We will aid and guide you in applying for public funding.

Training course projects for Bachelor or Master degree students are always available.

Current research projects

PHOtoresponsive Nonlinear Optical Monolayers (PHONOM)

The PHONOM project aims at designing self-assembled monolayers based on photoresponsive NLO switches, targeting primarily systems for applications in optical communication or data storage. The project relies on a multidisciplinary approach encompassing numerical simulations, molecular synthesis, surface engineering, and spectroscopic characterizations.
