Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are extremely valuable members of the TRIUMF community and make indispensable contributions to advancing the laboratory's research activities and mission. TRIUMF strives to offer postdocs and graduate students with exceptional opportunities for research training and career development in a lively and interactive environment.
TRIUMF offers a unique environment for graduate students. Students can do research at TRIUMF visiting with their supervisors, or they can be resident here under the supervision of a laboratory research scientist. Although TRIUMF is not a degree-granting institution, our research scientists are affiliated with universities with whom students can obtain their degrees.
The Thesis Opportunities page lists scientists who are actively recruiting students or interested in doing so.

Graduate students from around the world come to TRIUMF to further their research careers. In general if the student's supervisor is a TRIUMF user, then it is possible for the student to come to TRIUMF.
TRIUMF also liaises with a variety of organizations to faciliate and coordinate research opportunities for international students. It is also possible for international students to do research at TRIUMF outside of the programs covered by those agencies.
The Graduate Student and Postdoc Society (GAPS) is the primary social and professional development vehicle for TRIUMF's graduate students and postdocs. GAPS is committed to fostering a sense of community among the graduate students and postdocs, and developing an infrastructure to support their needs.
IsoSiM is a collaborative effort by TRIUMF & UBC to advance students’ understanding of the importance of isotopes in various areas of study, from nuclear physics to medical imaging and beyond. Graduate students form the majority of IsoSIM participants
