About this Fellowship

Applications are invited for a three-year Daphne Jackson Fellowship co-sponsored by Orthopaedic Research UK specialising in MSK to be held at any UK university or research establishment. The Fellowship is intended for orthopaedic scientists and musculoskeletal allied health professionals who want to return to research after a career break.


Daphne Jackson Fellowships

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to helping researchers restart their careers following a break for a family, caring or health reasons.

Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique – they offer 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 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. You can find an example of a previous recipient of the award by reading about the inaugural winner, Dr Nikki Kuiper’s project.
