The University of York has received funding from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to train the next generation of environmental scientists.

The university will receive a share of £100m in funding to support 14 new PhD students a year for the next five years in ecology, evolution and conservation as part of the Adapting to the Challenges of Changing Environment (ACCE) Doctoral Training Programme (DTP), along with 13 studentships a year as part of the PANORAMA programme.

The ACCE programme brings together the academic strengths of the Universities of Liverpool, Sheffield and York and benefits from the expertise and resources of the Centre of Ecology and Hydrology and the Natural History Museum.

The multidisciplinary programme aims to develop confident and multi-skilled PhD students capable of undertaking cutting-edge research and tackling environmental biology questions of global significance.
