Foreign Influence Review

Pursuant to Florida Statute 1010.35, the University must screen applicants seeking research or research-related positions prior to an interview or offer of employment. Applicants applying for such positions must provide additional information to be considered for such positions and may also be required to provide additional documents (e.g., passport, DS-160) based on the information they provide.


The Foreign Influence Review (FIR) process must take place PRIOR to final interviews. Reviews are conducted by the Research Integrity Office/ORSP. Only approved candidates may move forward in the hiring/search process.
