Support schemes

  • Daphne Jackson Fellowships
    Daphne Jackson Fellowships offer STEM professionals the opportunity to return to a research career after a break of two or more years for a family, health or caring reason. It is the opportunity to balance a personlised retraining programme with a challenging research project, held in a supportive UK university or research establishment. Fellowships are flexible and part-time, usually completed over two years at 0.5 FTE, 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 team, coupled with the mentoring and retraining provided during the Fellowship, give returners the confidence and skills they need to return to research successfully.
  • Childcare at conferences
    Many academic conferences now provide childcare. It is worth finding out if any conferences you are interested in attending will have this option. For example: ECM32
  • Research Fellowships
    Some research fellowships include money to cover childcare costs if you need to travel for work. They may also include options for part-time working and extensions, particularly related to parental leave.
