About the John Innes Centre

As an internationally renowned centre of excellence for research in plant and microbial science, the John Innes Centre encourages flexible working to aid career development and holds a Gold Athena SWAN award in recognition of its commitment to equal opportunities.


The Daphne Jackson Trust

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning scientists, technologists, engineers 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.
