About this Fellowship

Applications are invited for Daphne Jackson Fellowships that will be hosted by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research at the University of Bristol. The Fellowships are intended for individuals who want to return to research in their careers as scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians and who will be conducting health-related research. Health-related research is understood as spanning laboratory to applied or translational science. Daphne Jackson Fellowships are for researchers returning to their careers following a break of two years or more taken for family, caring or health reasons. The Fellowships are for 20 months on a part-time (60% FTE) basis. Fellows must be available to start in or before January 2020.

You can find out more about the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute here:

As an Elizabeth Blackwell Institute Daphne Jackson Fellow you will work within a School and Faculty at the University of Bristol. Applicants will need to approach and agree a plan of work with a potential academic sponsor as part of the application process. We are particularly interested in supporting applicants working in interdisciplinary research, but applicants working in single disciplines will be considered equally. 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.

Applicants should have a solid track record in research before taking their career break, will be able to demonstrate a clear research and training plan for the period of their Fellowship, and should be able to demonstrate a sound plan to secure future funding or a position beyond the period of their Fellowship. 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.
