We have a few openings for:
In addition, we are always interested in receiving applications from visiting
scholars and talented students who are interested in conducting research
as part of our team.
Candidates with any background related to our research interests are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact directly Dr. Filippo Pierini (email@example.com).
Filippo Pierini is the winner of a scholarship awarded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education for outstanding scientific achievements.
Prof. Alexander L. Yarin (University of Illinois at Chicago) visited our lab.
A new postdoctoral researcher (Chiara Rinoldi), a Ph.D. student (Yasamin Ziai) and a student (Michał Pruchniewski) have joined our group. Welcome Chiara, Yasamin and Michał!
Our group was delighted to host Dr. Luciano De Sio (Sapienza University of Rome).
Dr. Francesca Petronella (CNR-IPCF) visited our lab.
The Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange (NAWA) awarded Canaletto grant to Filippo Pierini (Title: Nanostructured light-responsive hydrogels based on polythiophene derivatives for photothermal therapy).
Filippo Pierini has been awarded an FNP First Team Grant for his project entitled "Electrospun conducting hydrogel nanomaterials for neural tissue engineering".
Paweł Nakielski has become the winner of the LIDER competition. The aim of this project is
to design and form an injectable scaffold as a carrier in cell therapy, which will contribute to
the regeneration of the intervertebral disc.
We are pleased to announce that Paweł Nakielski, Ph.D., from our group has received a scholarship from the Minister of Science and Higher Education for eminent young scientists. Scholarships are awarded to outstanding young researchers who conduct high-quality research and have impressive scientific achievements on an international scale.
The Foundation for Polish Science (FNP) awarded HOMING grant to Izabela Piechocka. In total 10 researchers received a HOMING funding with a maximum of 188.000 euro. The grant enables Izabela to investigate in situ the role of shear flow in organization of fibrin networks and in fibrin-platelets interactions.
The Pierini Research Group developed a method, based on the use of electrospun nanofibers, which allow to fabricate single-material organic solar cells (SMOCs) with the highest reported efficiency value (PCE = 5.58%).
Electrospun nanofibers-based organic solar cell article has been published in Macromolecules in collaboration with M. Lanzi (University of Bologna).

Sylwia Pawłowska was a participant of the 5th Conference on Nano- and Micromechanics (Wrocław, 4-6 July), where she presented her latest research results on the lateral migration of highly deformable hydrogel nanofilaments under an oscillatory flow.
Dr. Nakielski recently attended the 2017 NanoTech Poland Conference in Poznań (1st - 3rd of June) where he presented his research on blood coagulation in contact with nanofibers.
A new member, Dr. Iza Piechocka, has joined our group. We are very happy to welcome Iza as a postdoc researcher.
