Staff Association concerns that any federal budget funding cut would result in more job losses have been confirmed by CSIRO management.
In an email to CSIRO staff, Chief Executive Dr Megan Clark has outlined some detail of the funding cuts, the areas of research that will be affected and the grim news that hundreds more jobs will be lost.
Dr Clark has indicated that more detail the areas of research that are affected would be provided in this year’s Annual Direction Statement, due for release on Friday.
