In this paper, we obtain approximate bound state solutions of an N-dimensional fractional time independent Schrödinger equation for a generalised Mie-type potential, namely, . Here α(0 < α < 1) acts like a fractional parameter for the space variable r. When α = 1 the potential converts into the original form of Mie-type of potential that is generally studied in molecular and chemical physics. The entire study is composed with a Jumarie-type fractional derivative approach. The solution is expressed via the Mittag-Leffler function and fractionally defined confluent hypergeometric function. To ensure the validity of the present work, obtained results are verified with the previous studies for different potential parameter configurations, specially for α = 1. At the end, few numerical calculations for energy eigenvalue and bound state eigenfunctions are furnished for a typical diatomic molecule.
