Royal Society of Edinburgh Enterprise Fellowship Programme


RSE Enterprise Fellowships provide a salary, mentoring and formal business training, allowing the Enterprise Fellow to focus solely on developing their business over a 12-month period.

A BBSRC funded RSE Enterprise Fellowship can be taken on a full-time or part-time (maximum 2 years) basis; please see the RSE terms and conditions and application guidelines document’s available on the RSE website or contact David Hendry if you would like to discuss.

BBSRC funded RSE Enterprise Fellowships are available to all researchers who are seeking to build on BBSRC-funded research (postdoctoral researchers, fellows, lecturers, professors and so on) and who are employed by a UK higher education establishment or BBSRC strategically funded institute.

An applicant will need to be able to demonstrate that their application draws substantially on the outputs of a previous peer reviewed research grant or other type of substantial BBSRC investment. For any questions regarding eligibility to apply, please contact David Hendry.

The closing date for applications is 28 April 2021 at 5pm. Please visit fellowships or contact Hannah Chater for further information.
