The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), established in 2010, comprises the University of Tasmania's internationally recognised expertise across the full spectrum of temperate marine, Southern Ocean, and Antarctic research and education.
The Institute works closely with the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-operative Research Centre (ACE CRC), the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) and the AMC’s National Centre for Marine Conservation and Resource Sustainability (NCMCRS). Through a close partnership with the Tasmanian Government, IMAS undertakes research supporting the development and sustainable management of living marine resources, focusing on the needs of industry, the community and the regulators.
IMAS offers PhD degrees in all areas of research undertaken in the Institute. IMAS is also home to the innovative Quantitative Marine Science PhD program which is jointly funded by CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research and the University of Tasmania.
