Academic Programs

TRIUMF is a natural magnet for young minds and we pride ourselves on the programs for our students and post-doctoral fellows.

From high school and undergraduate students, through to graduate students, TRIUMF's numerous postdoctoral fellow and student programs ensure that as many as possible benefit from the scientific program and excitement that exists within Canada's premier national laboratory.  TRIUMF is a great place for young minds to gather, learn, make new friends and have fun doing so.  

With 150 postdoctoral research fellows, graduate students, and co-op students working side-by-side with world-class scientists, engineers, and technicians, TRIUMF is training the next generation of science leaders.

TRIUMF Academic Committee

The TRIUMF Academic Committee (TRAC) coordinates all academic activities taking place at or involving TRIUMF. Our goal is to promote and strengthen academic activities in the core competencies of the laboratory and enhance our engagement with Universities in Canada and abroad. 

 


 Graduate Students and Postdocs Society

The Graduate Students and Postdocs Society (GAPS) at TRIUMF is committed to fostering a sense of community among the graduate students and postdocs, and developing an infrastructure to support their needs.

On our website can be found: Information on regular events, the GAPS lectures series, links to awards and fellowships, and a job information page.


Summer Schools

TRIUMF in cooperation with institutional partners put on a variety of summer schools for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.  

The schools are typically two-weeks long and cover topics in theory and experiment spanning the breadth of TRIUMF's research program.


 

Work Integrated Learning 

TRIUMF's Work Integrated Learning initiative is a significant expansion of TRIUMF’s long-standing experiential learning programs (which include technical and innovation-themed seminars and talks) into a broad-based professional development experience for students at the lab. The professional development sessions include a variety of skills aimed at augmenting the technical training students receive in their roles at the laboratory. The sessions and workshops focus on key areas including leadership, critical thinking, communication, conflict resolution, team building, and emotional intelligence.
