1. Do you consider that occupations need to be added to the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)?

Yes

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

Please also include occupations that you propose should be moved from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) to the MLTSSL.

234511 Life Scientist (General)
234599 Life Scientists nec

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

It has been evident that Australia is largely lacking of bright life scientist who can contribute significantly to the Australian healthcare sector. For example, Life Scientist (nec) and Life Scientist (general) are two important occupations that have been removed from the occupation list, therefore many international bright scientists who have graduated from the top Australian universities have left Australia despite having desire to extend their research career further in Australia. In my case, I wished to stay in Australia permanently as a life scientist after finishing my PhD, but I had to move to the UK as a postdoc since my occupation as a life scientist has been removed from the list. I hope reviewer who have been involved in review the whole occupation and add Life Scientist (nec, general) in the main skill list.
