Polarization at the metal/water interface

About the topic:

This project aims to describe electrified interfaces in atomistic molecular dynamics simulations within a simple force field approach. Starting from our recent work on metal polarization, we plan to add explicit charges to the slab in order to describe net fields beyond the point of zero charge.

What they are looking for in students:

For the solvation student challenge program, students with experiences in basic Physicists, Chemists, Materials Scientists, Statistical Physics Statistical Mechanics/Quantum Mechanics can apply.  Experiences with the Programming skills are beneficial but not required.
