Daphne Jackson Fellowship Opportunity at the University of the West of Scotland

Daphne Jackson Trust

2 Year Contract

Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be hosted and fully sponsored by the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) in the School of Engineering and Computing, at the Paisley Campus.

This fellowship is intended for a scientist wishing to return to an area of physics research, within the remit of the Institute of Thin Films, Sensors and Imaging.

The School's research is organised into a close community of industry-focused inter-disciplinary research groups and the successful applicant will be expected to proactively collaborate with colleagues across all disciplines to enhance the impact of their research.

UWS is committed to provide a supportive, sociable and inclusive working environment and to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from underrepresented groups. UWS currently holds a Bronze Athena SWAN award and is a "Two Ticks" employer. It is also very committed to provide a flexible working environment and improve the gender balance in the School.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians to their careers following a break taken for family, caring or health reasons.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique - They offer STEM professionals wishing to return to a research career after a break of two or more years, the opportunity to balance an individually tailored retraining programme with a challenging research project in a suitably supportive environment.

Fellowships are part-time over two years and consist of a challenging research project and at least 100 hours retraining per year. The unparalleled support offered by the Trust's Fellowship Advisors and administrative staff, coupled with mentoring and retraining provided during the Fellowship, give returners  the confidence and skills they need to successfully return to research.
