Supervisors play a key role in guiding a Daphne Jackson Fellow smoothly on their transition from career break to returning to a successful STEM career.

Often candidates will approach a University department or other potential host organisation, and will identify someone within the organisation to act as their supervisor. 

The supervisor must be an accredited research supervisor of the host organisation who will accept responsibility for guiding the Fellow's training and research programme. Fellowship goals are established by the candidate in consultation with the supervisor. The agreement of both supervisor and host department is a pre-requisite for a Fellowship.

If you are a potential supervisor and have been approached by a Daphne Jackson Fellowship candidate, please read our guidelines for supervisors.
