Projects for the sixth round of INSPIRE recruitment (September 2024 start) are now live on the PhD Projects tab.

We will recruit about 22 students in this cohort so only some projects will end up getting a student. Projects will be based at one of the INSPIRE Hosting Partners and will start in late September 2024. 

We encourage students to look at the “How to Apply” page and personal statement guidance prior to applying.

The deadline for applications is 3 January 2024 – please contact if you have any questions about the application process.

Interviews will be held in-person at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton on 16, 17, 23 and 24 February 2024

The INSPIRE DTP and the University of Southampton are committed to promoting best practices for equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in all our activities, for our students, staff and supervisors, from recruitment through to graduation. We work closely with our DTP and other partners and across the University to monitor best practice and share experiences and expertise, aiming to create an inclusive research community, recognise structural barriers and privileges, and continuously improve equality and equity in all aspects of scientific research and education.
