Postgraduate Research Opportunities

Our postgraduates are key to the vibrancy and vitality of the Liverpool research culture, indeed much of our ground-breaking research comes from high-risk, high-reward exploration undertaken by our postgraduates. Our PhD graduates are positioned to pursue a career in academia, and many others are great successes outside academia. Our ethos has been to centre societal relevance and civic engagement as core to their research and this is reflected in our breadth of postgraduate training beyond specialist research skills, and the strong embedding of collaboration with industry and business in our postgraduate experience.

Our opportunities for PhD include the largest ESRC doctoral training partnership in England, the ESRC Data Analytics and Society Centre for Doctoral Training, the NERC Adapting to the Challenges of a Changing Environment (ACCE) DTP and  Doctoral Training Partnerships in our ERDF Ecoinnovatory projects building strong links with small and medium enterprises in northwest England.
