Daphne Jackson Fellowship 2019/2020

Applications are invited for a Daphne Jackson Fellowship that will be half sponsored by Imperial College London and hosted within any of our four Faculties.

The fellowship is intended for individuals returning to research part time (0.5 FTE) after a career break of two or more years. This fellowship will be part-funded by the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund, so the proposed research area should fall within their science remit

If you require assistance in identifying a potential Imperial supervisor, please contact Dr Sarah Essilfie-Quaye at issf@imperial.ac.uk.  We cannot guarantee that an appropriate supervisor will be found.

"If awarded, the fellowship would not start before November 2020, it is for three years and part time (0.5 FTE). As this is only half funded by Imperial, and this is split with the Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund, the approximate cost to your Department would be £7,500 per year plus some additional training costs approx. £1,500 per year"
