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.
Fellowships are part-time over two 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.
