PhD Opportunities At Liverpool


Doctoral training with ACCE2 at the University of Liverpool

Applications for ACCE PhD projects are NOW OPEN

Deadline for applications is 8th January 2020

Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed for only one project from across the ACCE partnership. However, as some projects have more applicants than others, we encourage applicants to consider applying for more than one project within ACCE in order to maximise their chances of being interviewed.

For the academic year starting in October 2020, ACCE projects supervised at Liverpool are available at the Institute of Integrative Biology, Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease and the School of Environmental Sciences.

For more information, or to apply for a project, please follow the links below.
