Another raft of job cuts in the science sector has been confirmed as part of moves by the Government to prune back public sector spending.

The PSA has confirmed up to 90 jobs are to go at NIWA - the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research.

It comes hard on the heels of news that up to 30 science and engineering jobs could be cut from Callaghan Innovation.
