The Archaeology department participated in successful bid to set up a NERC doctoral training program between York, Sheffield, Liverpool and NERC’s Centre for Ecology and Hydrology: Adapting to the Challenges of a Changing Environment (ACCE), 2014-2019. This will fund places for over 20 students a year across these institutions. ACCE students will be exposed to molecular biology, computer modelling, ecology, mathematics and statistics, environmental chemistry, biological archaeology, land-use management, climate and soil science, hydrology, and elements of the social sciences, amongst others.
The themes for ACCE are:
(1) Securing ecosystem services and environmental resources
(2) Ensuring resilience to climate change
(3) Understanding biodiversity
(4) Investigating evolutionary change: genes to communities
We will be shortly advertising several science-based archaeology PhD topics on the departmental website with a deadline for applications in late January. Keep your eyes out for the adverts here.
