Applications are invited for a three-year Daphne Jackson Fellowship co-sponsored by ME Research UK (SCIO - SC036942). The Fellowship is open to talented researchers with a PhD – likely in a life science e.g. biomedical sciences, whole organismal biology, molecular genetics, infection and microbiology, structural biology, biological chemistry, who wish to return to research within a UK university or research institution after a career break of two or more years. 

The principal aim of ME Research UK is to commission and fund high-quality scientific (biomedical) investigation into the causes, consequences and treatment of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as ME/CFS). 

ME Research UK only funds biomedical research that is directly related to the biology or treatment of ME/CFS. ME Research UK does not fund research which involves the use of animals. 

Daphne Jackson Fellowships 

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning researchers following a career break 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 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.
