Daphne Jackson Fellowship

This scheme is currently closed for applications. 

Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship hosted by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research at the University of Bristol. The Fellowship is intended for individuals returning to STEM health-related research. Health-related research is understood as spanning laboratory to applied or translational science. The Fellowship is for 18 months on a part-time (75% FTE) basis. Fellows must be available to start in or before March 2020. 

As an Elizabeth Blackwell Institute Daphne Jackson Fellow you will work within a School and Faculty at the University of Bristol. We are particularly interested in supporting applicants working in interdisciplinary research, but applicants working in single disciplines will be considered equally. 

As a Fellow sponsored by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute you would be committing to the funding policies and position statements of the Wellcome Trust as the Wellcome Trust supports the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute. 

The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute will half-sponsor the Fellowship and the remaining funding will be secured by the Daphne Jackson Trust from an additional sponsor. You can find out more about the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute here: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/blackwell

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. 

The Fellowships 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.
