CSIRO’s chief scientist role faces uncertain future

The national science agency could axe its chief scientist role as part of a planned restructure that is expected to result in hundreds of jobs cuts.

Professor Fox, who spent almost three years at the agency, will join the University of New South Wales as its new deputy vice-chancellor for research and enterprise later this month.
