Anatomical Society Sponsored Daphne Jackson Fellowship

This has now closed and is for information only.

Applications are invited for an Anatomical Society sponsored two year Daphne Jackson Fellowship to be held at any
university or research establishment in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland. The Fellowship is for
individuals who want to return to research in the areas related to the anatomical sciences.

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.
