Over 150 years of marine science teaching and research
The Marine Studies Institute (MSI) focuses on communicating the significant research undertaken by the marine community at the University of Sydney. The main emphasis is on networking academics across disciplines to develop and promote ideas and innovation and support the development of science based policy in decision making related to our vast marine jurisdiction.
An advisory board, encompassing representation from the faculties of Science, Engineering and Law provides strategic direction and a coherent voice representing University of Sydney marine science affiliations. The group reaches out to key industry and government entities to support innovative, applied research that responds to national needs.
MSI holds an annual research showcase, where university researchers and students can present their latest work. This event highlights the high-calibre research and projects being undertaken across the university and promotes discussion on innovative, cross disciplinary problem-solving research.
MSI is the focal point for marine internships and volunteer positions. If you are interested in enquiring about opportunities please contact the MSI coordinator.
