Upcoming opportunities

The Centre's transdisciplinary approach to understanding, interpreting and responding to the challenges of the Anthropocene will help identify opportunities to increase the future sustainability of our planet.

Our postdoctoral researchers create a pool of complementary expertise and skills, collaborating within and across academic disciplines to deliver world-leading research. Our current postdoctoral researchers work across a range of projects covering the sciences, social sciences and humanities. Find out more about their research.

We welcome interest from current or potential Independent Research Fellows in any area of Anthropocene research. Find out what fellowship funding opportunities are available.

Please contact chris.thomas@york.ac.uk to find out how we can support you and increase your research opportunities within the Centre, and help your applications.

The Centre will host 24 PhD students at the University over a period of 10 years to work on projects relevant to our research objectives, in most instances with co-supervisors from two or more disciplines.

All doctoral students will receive training and interaction opportunities with other researchers across our partner institutions. Students will split their time between the Centre hub and their primary supervisor's department to facilitate interdisciplinary and within-discipline training.

We also welcome exciting ideas for future research from self-funded PhD applicants.
