Unlock Your Potential
BEBR plays a critical role in equipping individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in today’s dynamic job market. Through a range of training and educational initiatives, we empower both students and professionals to thrive in their careers.
BEBR provides practical training to professionals and students to prepare them for contribution to the Florida workforce and beyond. Postdoctoral Associates have the opportunity to participate in research projects, publish journal articles, attend conferences, present their research at conferences and to groups at UF and other institutions, work on service projects, and mentor graduate and undergraduate students. BEBR’s Network Science Program has trained several Postdoctoral Associates who have subsequently received positions at top-rated research institutions such as the University of Miami. Graduate students are hired as graduate research assistants and receive mentoring from BEBR faculty and staff while working on grant and contract-funded research. These students learn how to design and conduct research, write research articles for journal submissions, and give presentations at UF and academic conferences. After graduating, they often receive positions as Postdoctoral Associates and faculty at research institutions, work in applied policy organizations, or get jobs in the industry through corporate work.
