Employment in the Biological Sciences
The Department of Biology is committed to helping its graduates find employment in the field. We encourage all of our students to make use of the resources we provide for helping you find biology-related employment after graduation. The earlier in your education you identify potential employment opportunities, the better you will be able to tailor your education to meet the requirements of the chosen area of employment.
1. The Job Resource Center – current job opportunities in biology-related areas are posted under “Student Job Opportunities” in the lower, left-hand menu on the main page of the Biology website at uwf.edu/biology. Potential employers in the region list job opportunities at this site and our partner in this resource, After College, routinely lists jobs in Florida. Students can post their resumes at the site as well. We encourage our students to avail themselves of these services.
2. Career counseling interviews with faculty - faculty will use their contacts and expertise to help guide students toward jobs in the student’s area of interest. Contact information and area of expertise is listed in the table below for Biology faculty. Please arrange for a career counseling appointment by contacting the faculty in question by telephone or email.
