I have been employed at a college research center for 3 years, and my supervisor is an instructor. Today my supervisor informed me that the research funding will be cut this summer which will result in layoffs.
The instructor informed me that a grant writer recently left the college, leaving the position open and that I should speak with the college's senior administrative coordinator. I don't know anything about this position, so what should I say in the email to my contact person? What questions should I ask her?
