Argonne is 5th Best Place to work for postdocs

Argonne a top place to work for postdocs in 2013
For the third year in a row, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory is one of the 10 best places to work as a postdoctoral researcher, according to The Scientist magazine's annual survey. Argonne ranked fifth, moving up from sixth place last year, earning specific praise for its benefits and attention to personal and family life. More...

Dr. Filip Kondev
Physicist, Applied Physics and Nuclear Data Section
Past Affiliations:
- Physics Division, Argonne National Laboratory; time period 2/1/1999 – 2/1/2001; Mentors: R.V.F. Janssens and M.P. Carpenter;
- Technology Development Division; time period 2/1/2001-12/1/2001; Mentor: Donald L. Smith

As a post-doc in the Physics Division I was involved in nuclear structure research at the ATLAS facility. My main responsibilities were to participate in the operation and maintenance of the GAMMASPHERE spectrometer, and to develop and validate new methods for studying exotic nuclei using the Argonne Fragment Mass Analyzer. My work led to the discovery of shape-coexisting structures in very neutron-deficient platinum, gold and mercury nuclei, and of high-seniority K-isomers in several hafnium isotopes. I was also involved in a number of experiments devoted to studying properties of heavy and super-heavy nuclei, K-isomers, and nuclei far from the line of stability.

As a post-doc in the former Technology Development Division I was involved in the activities of Argonne Nuclear Data program. I have completed nuclear data evaluations on properties of nuclei within the A=177 mass chain.

In my current position in the Nuclear Engineering Division I am working on various nuclear data and applied nuclear physics projects. The main emphasis is on compilation and evaluation of nuclear structure and nuclear reaction data, and on development of nuclear data measurement, analysis and evaluation methodologies for use in basic science and technology applications. I am also collaborating with scientists from Argonne and other U.S. national laboratories and universities, and leading nuclear physics institutes overseas, on experimental nuclear physics projects. My research interest is on nuclear structure and astrophysics data, and their intersection with applied nuclear physics.
