This is a computational project that aims to aid the design of ferroelectric hybrid materials for use in flexible nanoelectronics. The primary supervisor will be Dr. Karen Johnston in the Department of Chemical Engineering in the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
The project will focus on the interaction of ferroelectric polymers with surfaces and will involve multiscale modelling using a combination of electronic structure methods (density functional theory) and classical molecular dynamics simulations. The aims of the project are to understand how the solid surface affects the polymer's structural and ferroelectric properties and, hence, give insight into the design of the materials for nanoelectronic devices.
Physics - Computational physics
The successful candidate should have (or expect to have) a good degree in physics, chemistry or a related subject. Experience with a Linux/UNIX environment, computer programming and simulation is desirable but not essential. Please note that international students (i.e. students who are not citizens of the UK or Europe) will have to be able to cover the overseas portion of the fees.
To apply email a cover letter, CV and contact details for at least two referees to Dr. Karen Johnston at email@example.com.
