EPSRC will be inviting applications for outline proposals for Research Software Engineer (RSE) Fellowships from 30 June.

The critical role software plays in powering today’s research and innovation has long been recognised by EPSRC, who have been instrumental in funding the now established role of the RSE. This call will support RSE Fellowships for a period of up to five years. An RSE Fellowship is a personal award for exceptional individuals who demonstrate leadership and the combined expertise of software engineering along with a solid knowledge of the research environment. In addition to expertise in computational software development and software engineering, an RSE Fellow will be an ambassador and have the potential to be a future leader. RSE Fellows are expected to promote the widespread use of computation and software best practice to enhance research outcomes and impact.

Call opening: 30 June 2020

Closing date: 18 August 2020

Funding Available: Up to £4.5 million is available through this call to support approximately four to eight RSE Fellows for a duration of up to five years.

How to apply: Outline proposal, invited full proposal and interview.

Assessment Process: Outlines will be considered by an expert panel. Successful applicants at the Outline stage will be invited to submit a full proposal. Full proposals will be considered by an expert panel and successful applicants will be invited for interview.
