The Mathison Trainee Organisation – MTO
The Trainee Organization is comprised of students (undergrad, grad students) and postdoctoral fellows working under full Mathison faculty members’ supervision.
The purpose of this organization is to bring together trainees willing to make the most of their experience at the Mathison Centre. It goes from organizing social events such as breakfast socials, summer BBQs, a Christmas party to creating opportunities to teach (see Mini-Courses), discuss how to get funding for an event (see or to organize professional development programs. It is also a place where all the trainees can talk about issues or concerns they have, to get support and advice from more senior trainees, or for the trainee rep to bring them to the Director’s attention.
The MTO is a collegial entity. There is no hierarchy and decisions have to be approved by the members.

The MTO worked on several initiatives such as the creation of a Welcome package, Mathison logos, maternity leave guidelines for postdoctoral fellows and an Exchange Program for Postdocs.
