PhD Opportunities At Liverpool

Doctoral training with ACCE2 at the University of Liverpool

The application is now CLOSED

The deadline for applications is 9th January 2019, and shortlisted applicants will be interviewed in the week beginning 11th February 2019. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed for only one project from across the ACCE partnership. However, as some projects have much 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 2019, ACCE projects supervised at Liverpool are available at the Institute of Integrative Biology and School of Environmental Sciences.

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