The scientific strategy of the Center for Sensors&Devices (FBK-S&D) is focused on the study, design, development and production of sensors, devices and microsystems using primarily the internal silicon-facility. In this contest, Quantum Technology, will be one the most important pillars of the future of the center. Thanks to the strong competences of the 120 researchers and technicians and to the innovative facility, the FBK-S&D center combines scientific excellence with the capacity to exploit the results of research, applying a model of open collaboration in innovation within national and international networks of expertise. The selection of these figures, will thus complement the unitary design pursued by the Fondazione which only a few months ago chose the heads of structures pertaining to cyber security, digital society, health & wellbeing, health emergencies, digital industry, sustainable energy and who will shortly – also in an interdisciplinary vision – be joined by the new directors of the Italian-German Historical Institute (FBK-ISIG), the Center for Religious Studies (FBK-ISR), and the Research Institute for the Evaluation of Public Policies (FBK-IRVAPP).

Applications from those candidates with documented international experience and advanced scientific and/or managerial qualifications, as well as a proven network of relationships in their communities of reference, will be taken into consideration.
Eligible applicants are professors or researchers in Physics, Engineering and other topics related to the activities of the S&D Center, affiliated with public or private universities or research institutes of international standing. Previous experience and leadership in international research teams or projects are preferable.
This is preferably a full-time position; however, the Foundation is open to hiring highly-dedicated part-time candidates. This is a three-year appointment and may be renewed once for another three years. If compatible, the contract will be the one applied by the Foundation, the sole collective ad hoc contract for Research & Innovation in the private sector. Alternatively, the collaboration appointment will be consistent with the goals pursued by the Foundation and with its organizational and operational model. The professional category and basic salary will be those stipulated for senior managerial and scientific staff. Any bonuses and incentive plans will be subject to individual negotiation.
