Daphne Jackson Fellowship Opportunity with the British Heart Foundation

Daphne Jackson Trust

Applications are invited for up to two British Heart Foundation Daphne Jackson Fellowships to be held at any UK university or research institute. The fellowships are intended for individuals who want to return to an area of cardiovascular research after a career break of two years or more.

Applicants should have a PhD and preferably postdoctoral experience.

The fellowships will be part-time for a fixed term of three years.

British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research in the UK, supporting research into the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The BHF’s vision is a world where people don’t die prematurely from cardiovascular disease. To achieve this vision, the BHF is committed to providing flexible personal awards that retain talented scientists in academia and that allow cardiovascular researchers to return to the laboratory after a career break. 

Please see the Information for Researchers section of the BHF website to find out more about the research supported by the BHF or contact research@bhf.org.uk if you have a query about the remit of your project.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians (STEM) 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. 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.
