Applications are invited for a three year Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be hosted and sponsored by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
The fellowship is intended for individuals who want to return to research in the areas within the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Queen Mary University of London is one of the UK’s leading research-focused higher education institutions, a member of the elite Russell Group of UK universities and ranked joint 9th in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. Queen Mary has a distinguished tradition in science and engineering, and was one of the first UK universities to establish engineering, computer science, chemistry, and materials departments.
The Faculty today provides research and teaching excellence across engineering, science and mathematics in five academic Schools (Biological and Chemical Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Engineering and Materials Science, and Mathematical Sciences), and the fellowship will be based in one of these areas.
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 or three 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.
