The Lead R&D Associate should be a recognized researcher in their field. Their main mission will be to promote RD&I activities and recognition within the group and unit by acquiring funding, managing large RD&I projects and maintaining / further developing their profile in the relevant scientific and technological communities.

As they will integrate into a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) that is strongly project and team oriented, the researcher should be comfortable securing funding and managing a sustainable project portfolio ranging from fundamental to industrial / application-oriented research.

The researcher is expected to pursue projects focusing primarily on sustainable polymeric materials, fibers and their composites, their synthesis, modification and processing / forming into final parts, as well as relevant structural, rheological and functional characterization tasks and proof-of-concept demonstrations of the real-world / industrial applications of such materials.

In this context, the researcher will lead the definition, and manage as PI, national and international RD&I projects of high complexity as well as multiannual and / or multidisciplinary RD&I projects.

They will additionally lead and promote the dissemination, valorization and transfer of RD&I results (patents, licenses, prototypes, publications, technical reports, participation in conferences) and publish scientific results in high-quality peer-reviewed journals.

Such efforts should be performed in strong collaboration with other members of the group, the unit and the department and will contribute to the development of Research & Technology activities in LIST.

Moreover, they will actively contribute to the development of scientific and technological cooperation networks at the national and international level.
