This paper discusses Skyrmions on the 3-sphere coupled to fermions. The resulting Dirac equation commutes with a generalized angular momentum G. For G = 0 the Dirac equation can be solved explicitly for a constant Skyrme configuration and also for a SO(4) symmetric hedgehog configuration. We discuss how the spectrum changes due to the presence of a non-trivial winding number, and also consider more general Skyrme configurations numerically.
