About this Fellowship

Applications are invited for a two year part-time (0.5FTE) Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences (FEPS) at the University of Surrey.

FEPS has a vibrant community of researchers working on projects from astrophysics to zero-emission cars.  Whilst applicants whose research interests map onto any of the groups in FEPS are welcome, we are particularly keen to recruit mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists.  The Associate Dean, Research and Innovation, Professor Julie Yeomans (j.yeomans@surrey.ac.uk) is happy to have preliminary conversations around potential research topics.

The University of Surrey will host and half sponsor the Fellowship. The remaining funding will be secured by the Daphne Jackson Trust from an additional sponsor.


Daphne Jackson Fellowships

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning researchers to their careers following a break of two years or more taken for a family, caring or health reason.

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 Fellowship consists 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.
