Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can I find job postings on company websites?
A: From the Florida BioDatabase you can click through to each company’s website and see if they have any job postings. Many bioscience companies are small and recruit by word-of-mouth. But some companies, such as RTI Surgical, Exactech, Banyan Biomarkers, AxoGen, and AGTC, post career openings online.
Q: Is there a jobs database for Florida that includes bioscience jobs in Gainesville/Alachua?
A: Go to the CareerSource of North Central Florida’s website to access a variety of job hunting resources. You can post your CV to EmployFlorida for statewide opportunities. Job seekers can also find more job information at the BioFlorida job board. Most North Central Florida bioscience companies are clustered in Progress Park, Alachua – click here for a directory.
