Laboratory of Biophysics of Ionic Liquids

Neutron Scattering, Atomic Force Microscopy and Computer Simulations

In our Lab we carry out cross-disciplinary basic research at the edge of physics, chemistry and biology, aimed at the development of applications in drug-delivering, nano-bio-medicine, pharmacology and, more in general, bio-nano-technology. We are always looking for talented and motivated new team members. If you would like to join our research group to work on either one of our active research lines or would like to propose a new research topic to be carried out together in our lab, do not hesitate to contact Prof Benedetto by email ("Contact me" link at the bottom of the page).

Moreover, there are several National, European and International PhD scholarship and postdoctoral fellowship programs as, for example, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Programme of the European Commission. Usually, these programmes requires the submission of a candidate-PI joint research proposal within a given deadline. If you are interested, please feel free to contact Prof Benedetto (reasonable in advance to the relevant deadline).
At the moment, we are looking/interested in the following profiles. However, if your profile is not listed but you would like to join our Lab, please do not hesitate to contact Prof Benedetto anyway.

  • Bachelor or Master graduate interested in taking a PhD studentships in biophysics (of ionic liquids);
  • Bachelor or Master graduate interested in taking a PhD studentships in neutron scattering instrumentation;
  • PhD graduate with experience in atomic force microscopy of biomembranes and/or living cells interested to join our group as a Postdoctoral Researcher;
  • PhD graduate with experience in protein amyloidogenesis interested to join our group as a Postdoctoral Researcher.
