RSE Personal Research Fellowships

Funding area: Career Development, Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), Social Science

The Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding researchers, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen field, with the opportunity to build an independent research career.

Applications are accepted from researchers with two to six years postdoctoral experience, working in the physical, computational, engineering, biological, medical, natural and social disciplines. Preference will be given to research likely to enhance the transfer of ideas and technology from the research community into increasing sustainable economic growth for all. The research projects proposed must align to one or more of the Scottish Government’s National Outcomes.

This award is currently under review and it is unlikely that the RSE will be offering Personal Research Fellowships in 2017.
