I would not change "condition" to "situation."  Financial condition is business finance terminology.  Individuals or families have financial situations.

 

Sanjay is right to change "challenge" to "challenging" in your sentence.  However, the end of the sentence is awkward and needs some clarity.  The challenge is that there is not enough money to hire more people, right? 

 

I understand that the current financial condition in biochemistry research presents a great challenge when hiring.

 

I removed "completely" because it is unecessary.  You either understand or you don't.  People add a word like "completely" for emphasis when the reader or listener is not likely to believe them.  It is often followed by some reasoning to explain why the listener is wrong.  I completely understand that you don't have the money to hire me, but you should anyway.  In other words, saying "I completely understand" often signals insincerity.  If you are sincere, there is no need to embelish.
