About this Fellowship

Applications are invited for an Anatomical Society sponsored two year Daphne Jackson Fellowship to be held at any university or research establishment in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland. The Fellowship is for individuals who want to return to research in the areas related to the anatomical sciences.

The Anatomical Society

The Anatomical Society, founded in 1887, is a learned society with charitable status. Its aims are to promote, develop and advance research and education in all aspects of anatomical science, including studies of morphology, development, evolution and the relationship of structure to function.

Please refer to the Anatomical Society website for more information about research areas: https://www.anatsoc.org.uk/home/about-the-anatomical-society

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