Daphne Jackson Fellowship Opportunity

Daphne Jackson Trust - Imperial College London

Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be half sponsored by Imperial College London and hosted within either the Faculty of Medicine, Engineering, Natural Sciences, or the Business School. The fellowship is intended for individuals returning to research, in areas relating to understanding health and disease or improving healthcare. As this Fellowship will be part-funded by Wellcome ISSF, the proposed research area should fall within their remit.

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 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.
