Left the lab but want to return?

Had to put your career on ice and looking for a way to restart it?

If so, the Daphne Jackson Trust may be able to help.

The Daphne Jackson Trust is the UK’s leading organisation dedicated to realising the potential of scientists and engineers returning to research following a career break. We offer flexible, part-time fellowships in universities and research institutes in the United Kingdom.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique - They offer STEM professionals wishing to return to a research career 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.
