If you’ve been searching for a job that involves caring for marine animals, you’re not alone.
The job of marine animal husbandries, or AMHs, is a lucrative one that requires extensive training and expertise.
AMH jobs are typically located in remote and remote-out-of-the-way locations.
But a recent survey from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) shows that AMH workers can find work in Sydney and Melbourne.
The survey found that in 2018, AMH staff were employed in 10 different countries, representing a quarter of all AMH positions.
AMI scientists are also highly sought after by the oil and gas industry.AIMs report, AMI 2017 AMH Trends, shows that over a three-year period, AMIs staff had earned more than $6.8 million in salaries and bonuses.
AMIs work has also been recognized as “one of the highest in the world”, with the Royal Society of Chemistry ranking AMIs among the top 50 globally in terms of overall work productivity.
The Australian AMH Council estimates that over 1,000 marine AMH and AMI positions have been created since the council was founded in 2004.
In 2019, AMIS is hoping to continue to increase its AMH workforce by attracting more overseas researchers.
The council has already launched a recruitment drive, with an expected launch in October 2019.
