I am trying to find some contacts / referrals in the marine biology / ecology / environmental consultancy sector in Oman, and am hoping for a little help! I'm very much of the opinion that the 'less formal' approach sometimes works just as well (if not better) than the traditional 'applying for advertised jobs' approach.
I hold a doctorate degree in Marine Biology (Biological Oceanography), from the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (UK). I'm looking for anything marine biology based really; research, consultancy, labwork, fisheries policy etc., and was wondering whether anyone could point me in the right (or at least a potential!) direction for some contacts. I'm currently working as an aquatic scientist in a UK consultancy company, but hoping to move to Oman! Fingers crossed.
