Spanning across the Universities of York, Sheffield and Liverpool, together with the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH) and the Natural History Museum (NHM), you'll benefit from a doctoral training programme that has interdisciplinary collaboration at its core. The aim is to produce multi-skilled researchers equipped to tackle cutting-edge environmental science of global significance, embedded within a unique, supportive training environment.
At the Adapting to the Challenges of a Changing Environment programme from University of York, the ACCE DTP brings together researchers from the Departments of Biology, Environment and Geography, Archaeology and Chemistry. All projects are co-supervised, most of them with supervisors in different institutions, in order to foster innovative science, collegiality and breadth of experience.
The NERC ACCE is the only DTP with a clear emphasis on the biological component of environmental research. This biological core, combined with the international standing of the partners in biological and related fields, makes ACCE a natural choice if you wish to undertake a PhD in biological research and related disciplines.
