There are over 150 job positions dedicated to technologists and technologists and technical collaborators that will be banned by INFN, as part of the projects of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), aimed at basic scientific research and the development of innovative technologies.

INFN seeks high school and ITS graduates for 60 positions as technical collaborator and technical collaborator with training in the field of precision mechanics, electronics, electrical engineering and computing. We are also looking for graduates and postgraduates in physics, engineering and other technical-scientific disciplines for 95 positions as a technologist and technologist with skills in mechanics, high vacuum systems, cryogenic systems, electronics, electrotechnics, detectors and particle accelerators. Skills in power lasers and optical systems are also required. Among these, a conspicuous number of positions are dedicated to systems computing and to the development of innovative software and artificial intelligence systems.

Selected candidates and candidates will be involved in highly innovative and creative projects in the fields of elementary particle physics, astrophysics, gravitational wave physics and many aspects of applied physics including superconductivity, medical physics , the development of innovative particle acceleration techniques and quantum computing.

The contracts, with a variable duration of between 24 and 30 months, will be assigned through special calls, available after the summer on the Jobs INFN website within the fixed-term competitions page (this is the direct link to the page). The workplaces are distributed throughout the national territory. As foreseen by the PNRR calls, particular attention will be paid to Southern Italy, where 40% of the calls will be placed, and female participation will also be promoted and supported thanks to 40% of the contracts reserved for women.

Always in line with the indications provided by the PNRR and in order not to disperse the skills acquired, INFN’s intent is to announce, starting from 2026, a number of permanent contracts equal to at least 40% of the number of fixed-term positions.

An important opportunity for the training and growth of young careers, to build the future of scientific research together, working in large national and international projects.

INFN is the national public research body dedicated to the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. He carries out theoretical and experimental research activities in the fields of subnuclear, nuclear and astroparticle physics in a context of international competition.
