PhD in the development and application of computer simulation techniques for adsorption on graphene Applications are invited for a 4-year PhD studentship in the area of computational materials science based at University College London (UCL). The particular project will involve the development and application of state-of-the-art computer simulation approaches for the calculation of accurate adsorption energies of molecules on graphene. The adsorption of atoms and molecules on surfaces is of central importance to an almost endless list of practical applications and everyday phenomena, such as corrosion, lubrication, friction, catalysis, coatings, and sensors to name but a few. Indeed our perception of the physical properties of materials often depends sensitively on how adsorbates interact...
