This post holder will be situated in the Department of Physics at King’s College London , and will be part of the Thomas Young Centre (, a world leading organisation spanning four universities across London which focuses on the study of materials properties and behaviour through the application of theory and computer simulation.

A team spanning King’s College London and Imperial College is setting about transforming our ability to simulate corrosion at the atomic scale. This will be achieved by introducing methods that have not existed until now. You will help develop, deliver, and demonstrate the methods and computer codes that will make this possible. This will involve: developing open boundary molecular dynamics; building parameter sets to study the aqueous corrosion of Mg; computing key electrochemical quantities; investigating standard non-equilibrium electrochemistry results; building and applying a kinetic Monte Carlo code for localised corrosion; supporting the research of PhD students. We emphasise the team nature of this project. We particularly welcome applications from female and black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented in the University at this level.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 36 months.

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent

The selection process will include competency based questions and a panel interview.

Contact: Prof. Tony Paxton
