DENVER — Colorado will have a net gain of 80 Air Force Reserve jobs as the military restructures amid a slowdown in defense spending.

Schriever Air Force Base will get most of the additional Colorado jobs announced Tuesday, with 24 full-time positions and 56 part-time. Peterson Air Force Base will gain one full-time position and one part-time. Buckley Air Force Base will lose two full-time positions.

The Air Force says it's cutting 900 Reserve jobs nationwide and 3,000 jobs will change, requiring some reservists to move or commute to new locations.

The Air Force is shifting more emphasis to such specialties as space, cyberspace, intelligence and surveillance, areas where Colorado bases play a role.
