CSIRO To Cut 300 Jobs, Climate Science To Be Most Affected

The Climate Science team are expected to bear the brunt of massive job cuts at the CSIRO to be announced today.

The jobs to be cut are mostly in the Oceans and Atmosphere, and Land and Water divisions.

The CSIRO are aiming to place staff in alternate roles where possible — in growing fields such as data science — according to the ABC sources, with the goal of no net jobs lost over a two year period.

The CSIRO have been contacted for comment, which was declined until after the official announcement is made to staff today.
