RSE Personal Research Fellowships

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

The Research Fellowship scheme aimed 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 were accepted from researchers with two to six years postdoctoral experience, working in the physical, computational, engineering, biological, medical, natural and social disciplines. Preference was 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.

Please note: this scheme is no longer running. Our new programme of Research Awards will be announced soon, and will commence in 2021. For 2020, we offer our one-year Sabbatical Research Grant for early career researchers.

Fund duration

5 years.
