I hope you are well and starting to settle in as the university has transitioned most of its workforce to telework.  The need and opportunity for telework offers unique venues for work productivity and professional growth using online tools and science connectivity. At UF Research we are concerned for the safety of our science workforce during the current pandemic while also intrigued with the notion that time away from the grind presents very real prospect for enhancing typical progress in our work. We at UF Research offer suggestions for activities that advance research productivity while also keeping in active work status.   While this guidance is directed to those typically working in laboratory, field or clinical research funded by sponsored programs, it is applicable to a wide range of research associated positions at UF.  As a secondary support, we offer suggestions for administrative and financial staff to supplement and diversify their administrative and financial support responsibilities should that be necessary.

Suggestions and information are available at:

As always, please coordinate with your supervisor.  If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me directly.
