About this Fellowship
Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be half sponsored by SCI. The Fellowship is intended for individuals returning to an area of research, within the remit area of SCI, following a career break of two or more years. The Fellowship can be held in any UK academic institution. The remaining funding will be secured by the Daphne Jackson Trust from an additional sponsor.
SCI was established in 1881 by a group of scientists, inventors and entrepreneurs to support the commercialisation of chemistry and related science into industry for the benefit of society. The Society is an innovation hub, supporting an international community working at the interface of where science meets business. Applications should be in applied (translational) research areas, based around any of SCI’s key strategic themes: Energy, Sustainability and the Environment, AgriFood, Health and Wellbeing and Materials.
The Daphne Jackson Trust
The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning researchers to their careers following a break taken for 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 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.
