'This is the opportunity I was hoping for and it would not have been possible without the Daphne Jackson Trust and their wise and supportive team.'

About us

The Daphne Jackson Trust is a registered charity,  governed by a board of Trustees. Its offices are based in the department of physics at the University of Surrey.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships offer STEM professionals wishing to return to research after a break of 2 or more years, the opportunity to balance an individually tailored retraining programme with a challenging research project in a suitably supportive environment.

The unique combination of mentoring, retraining and research the Daphne Jackson Fellowship provides, gives Fellows the confidence and skills they need to return to their career and compete for research positions.

Fellowships can be based in a university of research institute anywhere in the UK.
