The Nutrition Society Sponsored Daphne Jackson Fellowship Opportunity

Daphne Jackson Trust

Applications are invited for a Nutrition Society sponsored two year Daphne Jackson Fellowship to be held at any UK university or research establishment. The fellowship is intended for individuals who want to return to research in the area of nutrition and its application to the maintenance of human and animal health.

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.

This Fellowship is part-time over two years and consists 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.
