The University of Trieste has been awarded its first ERC Starting Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) as part of the Horizon Europe framework. Pierangelo Gobbo, having worked in various institutions around the world, has chosen the University of Trieste (UniTS) to develop the first fully synthetic cells capable of integrating with living cells and tissues.
Postdoctoral position NOW AVAILABLE
The Gobbo Group is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with experience in the development of microfluidic platforms for the fabrication of water-in-oil microdroplets and multiple emulsions.
New students join the Gobbo Group
Despite current global pandemic our students’ thirst for discovery keeps on growing. The Gobbo Group welcomes MRes student Ms Estela Bocarando Salcido and ESPRC Vacation Bursary awardee Ms Victoria Jiang.
Funding available for a PhD scholarship on synthetic tissues
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work in the Gobbo Group in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol. The position is for UK/EU student and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), with funding for 42 months. The starting date is October 2020, and the research aims to implement the first synthetic tissues with collective information-processing functions.
