Undergraduate Student Program



TRIUMF hires about 70 undergraduate students from across the country and abroad every year. As Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics we are offering a work experience in a research setting at the frontier of science. The jobs offered reflect the broad range that the TRIUMF divisions have to  offer and include particle and nuclear physics, accelerator science as well as nuclear medicine.

Prospective Students

The year is organized in three terms of 4 months each.

Winter term: January-April

Summer term: May-August

Fall term: September-December

New jobs are posted every 4 month, but 8 month extended placements are also common. The application procedure is described here. Since TRIUMF is a national laboratory, a job offer includes a return air fare for candidates outside British Columbia.

NEW! Jobs for the next term will be posted when accepting applications!
