BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Concerned over gridlock over the federal budget, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research has eliminated 21 positions.

Communications Director Matt Hirschland says the job eliminations will include layoffs, retirements and vacant positions that will remain unfilled.

The agency manages the Boulder’s National Center for Atmospheric Research and employs more than 1,500 people. NCAR’s mission is to understand the behavior of the atmosphere and related physical, biological and social impacts.

The bulk of its funding comes from the National Science Foundation, which has operated under a string of continuing funding resolutions while Congress argues over a budget.
