Over 203 jobs dedicated to technologists and technical collaborators, of which over 40% in Southern Italy, were advertised by the 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 selected high school and ITS graduates for 69 technical collaborator positions with training in the field of precision mechanics, electronics, electrical engineering and computing. INFN also selected graduates in physics, engineering and other technical-scientific disciplines, for 134 technologist positions with skills in mechanics, high vacuum systems, cryogenic systems, electronics, electrical engineering, particle detectors and accelerators.

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

The contracts, with a variable duration of between 24 and 30 months, are assigned through specific calls, available on the INFN Jobs website on the fixed-term competitions page (this is the direct link to the page). The work sites are spread across the whole country. As envisaged by the PNRR calls, particular attention is paid to Southern Italy, where 40% of the jobs are based.

Again in line with the indications provided by the PNRR and in order to avoid the skills acquired going to waste, the aim of INFN is to announce, commencing from 2026, a number of permanent contracts equal to at least 40% of the number of fixed-term positions.

This is an important opportunity for the training and growth of young people’s careers, to build together the future of scientific research, working on major national and international projects.

INFN is the national public research body dedicated to the study of the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. It performs theoretical and experimental research activities, in the fields of subnuclear, nuclear and astroparticle physics in a competitive international context. INFN’s research activities are carried out at 27 sites distributed across the whole country. The fundamental research in these sectors requires the use of cutting-edge research technologies and tools, which INFN develops both in its own laboratories and in collaboration with the world of industry.
