The King’s College London scientist purge: what message does it send? | Jenny Rohn | Science | theguardian.com.

I’m saddened to hear that this is happening at my old university, a place where I was proud of the attitude shown to research. In addition, King’s has been falling down the league tables thanks to shoddy student satisfaction and I hardly think something like this, which will drastically affect quality of teaching and even increase class sizes, is going to help that situation.

Science students, lecturers and researchers at universities like King’s stand side by side and build relationships based on excellent work and trust. The university is not showing any of these groups of people the respect they deserve and has annihilated any trust between themselves and their own scientific community.

Please show your support of the King’s staff and sign the petition here: http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/rick-trainor-stop-kcl-health-school-redundancies
