What occupations should be added to the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)?

Please outline the evidence or data that would support these occupations being added to the MLTSSL.

The increasing demand for data scientists in any industry sector points towards the need of intradisciplinary specialists coming from scientific fields that are easily transferable to data science. One of these fields is Physics, and more specifically astrophysics, where scientists commonly use machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques to solve the misteries of the universe. Virtually all data science jobs in the health sector require a minimum of PR if not even citizenship. It is imperative to allow permanent immigration of physicists to respond to the increasing demand of data scientists in the health and government sectors.
