Ph.D. student in the Laboratory of Functional Biointerfaces


Our investigation efforts aim to encompass the development of new methodologies to elucidate biointerfacial interactions phenomena such as novel approaches to probing functional coatings architectures, as well as molecular-level studies on surface-mediated biomolecular interactions dynamics. The research addresses current topics in biophysics, biology, molecular biology, and bioengineering.


Laboratory of Functional Biointerfaces hires candidate will pursue a research in the areas of biosensors development, synthesis, characterization and application of novel bio-functional materials, and interfaces, microfluidics, or/and cell-on-a-chip research. The specific tasks as well as doctoral dissertation topic will be selected considering the previous experience and scientific topic of interest.
