Daphne Jackson Fellowship Opportunity with the Kennedy Trust for Rheumatology Research

Daphne Jackson Trust

Applications are invited for a Kennedy Trust sponsored three year Daphne Jackson Fellowship to be held at any UK university or research establishment. The fellowship is intended for a scientist wishing to return to research into any clinical or pre-clinical subject in the field of rheumatology and related musculoskeletal or immunological diseases.

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 or three 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.
