OPS, or “Other Personnel Services” temporary employment comprises the University of Florida’s at-will, temporary jobs. OPS temporary appointments can be terminated at any time without cause. Please note that OPS temporary appointments are distinct from time-limited Staff Full-Time positions. It is at the hiring department’s discretion to prolong an OPS temporary appointment. In fact, in some cases an OPS appointment can last several years depending on the funding.
Student Assistants include undergraduate and graduate students. A Student Assistant is a person enrolled at the University of Florida in a degree program and is being employed in a department performing non-academic work, which differentiates their classification from that of a graduate assistant.
Time limited positions are based on circumstances, such as funding sources, which control the length of time for which the position is available. A time-limited position shall have the same rights as a position with a regular appointment modifier, except such position does not have rights provided for layoff, recall, and notice of non-reappointment.
