STEM adviser joins chief scientist’s team

The Federal government has appointed an adviser on science, technology, engineering and mathematics in education and industry.

Roslyn Prinsley, a consultant at Sinclair Knight Merz, will take up the position in February. She will be based in the Office of the Chief Scientist and will advise the government via chief scientist Ian Chubb.

Prinsley has also worked at the Rural Industries Research & Development Corporation and was manager of the Agricultural Sciences Program for the Commonwealth Science Adviser to the Commonwealth Secretary-General in the UK.

The appointment was one of the measures decided in May last year as part of government attempts to tackle future STEM skills shortages.
