Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be hosted by the John Innes Centre at the Norwich Research Park.  The scientific research at the Centre makes use of a wide range of disciplines in the biological and chemical sciences, including cell biology, computational and mathematical biology, biochemistry, chemistry, genetics and molecular biology. As an internationally renowned centre of excellence for research in plant and microbial science, the John Innes Centre encourages flexible working to aid career development.

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.

Fellowships are part-time over two years and 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.

Closing date:February 28th 2014.
