Hi, I am Joost Slingerland . I'm a theoretical
physicist working on
topological phenomena in condensed matter physics and on their application
to topological quantum computation. For some introductory material on topological quantum computing you can
view my Topological Quantum Media Pages.
I am a lecturer in the department of mathematical physics
at the National University of Ireland,
I am also affiliated with the School of Theoretical Physics of
the Dublin Institute for Advanced
Studies (I was a Schrödinger Fellow there from 2007
I am a member of DaQisT, the
Dublin Area Quantum Information Science and Technology Group.
Here's a link to a list of my publications
and other writings.
I am principal investigator of a
working on Topological Order, Quantum Computation and the Fractional
Quantum Hall Effect, sponsored by Science
I am running a Summer
Project for Undergraduate Researchers
(SPUR) this year.
This is a funded
research internship for one undergraduate student. Duration: 6 weeks
Funding: 1500 euro. Description
If you want to apply to be that student,
send me an emaiil with a CV, a short explanation why you are motivated and
suited to the project (max 1/2 page A4) and the names of two people I can
approach as references.
The deadline is Wednesday June
Project start June 16 (though this is somewhat flexible)
Note: Students in their
final year are not eligible.
In Spring 2014, I am teaching
In Fall 2013, I taught
(click to visit the webpages)
In 2006-2007, I was a
postdoc at UC Riverside, with
Kirill Shtengel, as well
as a long term visitor in theoretical physics at the Institute for Quantum Information
Before that I worked at
Station Q , Microsoft's research station dedicated to topological
quantum computation, which was housed in the Kavli Institute for Theoretical
Physics at UCSB and has now
moved to the California Nanosystems
Institute, next door to the KITP.
