  • Researcher Profile: Recognised Researcher (R2)
  • Application Deadline: 09/10/2022 15:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: Croatia › Split
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 40
  • Senior assistant / postdoctoral candidate (1 position) at the Centre of Excellence for Science and Technology - Integration of the Mediterranean Region - STIM at the University of Split; STIM-REI project (research, innovation and education), on a fixed, full-time basis, until the end of the project implementation

    Expected start of work is November 2022.

    STIM-REI links research with innovation and education. Advanced nanoscale technologies element involves following activities:

    ID New materials for organic-inorganic hybrid solar cells (HBCs) include: (i) characterization of the properties of porphine, a graphene analogue, and the design of its bifunctional layers, as well as (ii) the development of hybrid nanostructures for transparent solar cells. The goal is to model and experimentally create nanostructures with optimal optical properties for a new generation of more efficient and cheaper solar cells.

    IE Design of new nanostructured materials for biosensors and their application in medical diagnostics (VBK) includes theoretical modeling for (i) new biosensors using metal nanoclusters, with superior detection sensitivity; (ii) a new class of nonlinear fluorophores based on ultra-small metal nanoclusters protected with biomolecules, which allow deep tissue penetration and enable direct imaging of living cells. The aim of the activity is to improve early medical diagnostics.

    The head of the Center is prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Vlasta Bonačić Koutecký, Interdisciplinary Center for Advanced Science and Technology (ICAST); STIM at the University of Split (
