The group is now accepting talented students who are interested in conducting undergraduate research as part of our team.
In addition, we are always interested in receiving applications from highly motivated graduate students interested in a PhD position.
Prospective postdoctoral researchers and visiting scholars are also welcome.
Candidates with any background related to our research interests are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact directly Dr. Filippo Pierini (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.
