Daphne Jackson Fellowships

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning researchers to their careers following a break of two years or more taken for a family, caring or health reason.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique. They offer 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 Fellowship 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.

We recommend that Daphne Jackson Fellows are placed on the relevant pay scale of the HE framework agreement single pay spine.
