Doctoral training with ACCE2 at the University of Liverpool
Applications for ACCE PhD projects have now closed
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.
