BP has signed prominent American scientists to lucrative research contracts that come with non-disclosure agreements, according to Press-Register.
Professors at Louisiana State University, University of Southern Mississippi and Texas A&M have agreed to work for BP at $205 an hour. The rules of academia say these professors are allowed to work as outside consultants for up to eight hours per week.
Science departments that refused to sign non-disclosure agreements were not hired.
