ACCE DTP brings together the very best in environmental, ecological and evolutionary research across the Universities of York, Sheffield and Liverpool, along with the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH). Students will benefit from a PhD training program 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 York, the NERC Partnership brings together researchers from the Departments of Biology, Environment, Archaeology, and Chemistry. All projects are co-supervised, most of them with supervisors in different institutions, to foster innovative science, collegiality, and breadth of experience.

Biology Department via ACCE DTP offers projects across the spectrum of environmental science, focussing on ecosystem services, climate change, biodiversity, and evolution. We are providing eight projects where the lead supervisor was based in York Biology. Also, there are projects available in the departments of Environment, Archaeology, and Chemistry.
