Relauncher Success Story

Sami Kafala found an opportunity to research and train in Medical Physics through the Daphne Jackson Fellowship, a UK program that returns professionals in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Technology.


As a Physics PhD, I was originally a researcher, evaluating nuclear data. After a five-year carer break as the primary caregiver for my five children, I was having difficulty returning to research work. Thanks to a three-year Daphne Jackson Fellowship, I was able to research and retrain in Medical Physics, and now enjoy a related but new career.

Daphne Jackson is a UK program that returns professionals in Science, Engineering, Mathematics, and Technology to their careers after at least a 2 year break, through flexible, part-time, paid fellowships that include research and retraining." www.DaphneJackson.org
