The National Marine Science Committee is conducting research to investigate the compatibility between postgraduate training and the needs of employers in Australia’s marine/aquatic sector. The project is intended to contribute to the development of university training that better meets the emerging needs of Australia’s ‘Blue Economy’.
My name is Tracy MacKeracher and I am the Research Officer on the project, based at James Cook University. We are conducting a short (5 – 10 min) online survey to understand the professional staff needs of employers in Australia's marine/aquatic sector. The survey can be completed by a senior representative of any non-university employer in the sector (e.g. consulting, research, fishing, non-profit sector, offshore oil & gas, marine insurance, tourism, government, boat/ship building, construction, ports & shipping). I have attached an information sheet, which provides additional details.
Would any AMPI members be willing to complete this important anonymous online survey?
If so, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By participating in this study, you would be supporting research that contributes to the development of university training that better meets the needs of employers in Australia’s marine/aquatic sector.

I have tried to be brief as this is a preliminary e-mail to scope your interest. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the project and, upon request, the results can be made available to you once the project is completed.
