Daphne Jackson Trust / Alzheimer’s Society Fellowship Info

Watch the recording of our livestream from 21st April to hear about the Daphne Jackson Trust & Alzheimer’s Society Fellowship. A collaboration that enables talented scientists and researchers to retrain and return to research after a break of two or more years taken for family, caring or health reasons.

In this session we hear about the latest call (recording from 2023 but details still applicable for 2024 call), who is eligable, how to apply, what they’re looking for. We also hear from a previous successful applicant about their journey, and take your questions.


Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique. They offer researchers the opportunity to return to a research career after a break of two or more years for a family, health or caring reason. By combining a personalised retraining programme with a challenging research project, held in a supportive UK university or research establishment, our Fellowships provide a vital opportunity for those looking to return to a research career.

Fellowships are flexible and part-time, usually completed over two years at 0.5 FTE. They consist of a challenging research project and at least 100 hours of 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.
