The Science Policy Group at UCSF, a student and postdoc-led organization, has recently released the results of a survey they administered in October entitled “Survey of Federal Budget Sequestration Effects on Laboratory Trainees at UCSF.”
The survey looked at how the across-the-board US federal budget reductions, commonly known as “sequestration,” have affected graduate students and postdocs at UCSF since the budget cuts were first implemented in March of 2012.
