California Researchers Chilled by Sudden Freeze on Bond Funds

Posted by drhein 2033 days ago in Miscellaneous from http://www.sciencemag.org

About how the financial crisis is affecting science. An excerpt:

Across UC Davis, 60 projects received stop-work orders, says Jan Hopmans, chair of the university's Department of Land, Air and Water Resources--20 in his department alone. "Many of these grants are for a few hundred thousand to a few million dollars," Hopmans says. "We have 50 employees just in my department for whom we have in principle no funding at this time." Researchers, students, and technicians have been reassigned to projects with other sources of funding where possible, Hopmans says, but so far 13 people have received layoff notices.
