It's very cool stuff.

  • Submit grant funding applications, ensuring that costs are properly estimated and recorded, also taking responsibility for generating technical reports and cost reports
  • Being visible to funding organisations, customers and collaborators as a key player in the company
  • Participate in developing the IP portfolio for the company

About You:

  • PhD in Electronics / Photonics / Semiconductors / Quantum or 2D materials

  • Evidence of successful post-doctoral work, grant applications, working with partner organisations and technical reporting
  • Evidence of publishing papers or patent preparations
  • Excellent spoken and written English is essential. Competence in Italian will be beneficial
