The MPLS division have been awarded Diversity Funds to create 3 Daphne Jackson Fellowships. A Daphne Jackson Fellowship is a unique fellowship designed to return STEM professionals to their careers after a break. Fellows normally carry out their research part-time over 2 years, in a University or research establishment in the UK. The Fellowships are flexible and include a tailored training programme designed to update skills and knowledge and support individuals in their return to research. These Fellowships can also be of incredible benefit to PIs and Research groups, and generally helps the University promote part-time working.
In order to progress with recruitment and selection for these 6 positions, it is important at this stage to get an idea of “who” in “which” department would be interested in arranging and hosting a part-time Daphne Jackson Fellow. You may be an individual PI, or a Research group, and see the value in the having such a fellow working with you. We would also welcome hearing from you if you have had experience in hosting such fellowships and any wisdom you can impart.
