RSL Trainee Council

We are an open group of friendly trainees that officially represents the graduate students, postdocs and research associates of the RSL to the faculty, and aims to create a culture that encourages initiative, collaborations, mentorship and friendship. The Trainee Council's official mission is to:

  • foster an environment supportive of all trainees
  • enrich the training experience beyond research
  • build community among all RSL members

Upcoming Events

We often organize social events (from weekly happy hours, to off-campus outings, and more) and career-development events (e.g., talks on industry and academic career paths, and other transferable skills); check back to see what's upcoming, and volunteer to help make these fun and valuable experiences!

Weekly happy hour:
4pm on Fridays at the lightwell or at the oval table (depending on the weather)

Join us!

Any RSL trainee is welcome to join the Trainee Council.  We meet regularly on the second Wednesday of every month, from 11 am to noon in P080.  If you would like to learn more or get involved (e.g. you have an idea for a community event or something else that would be great for RSL), please stop by one of our meetings or approach one of us!
