Teresa Evans, Ph.D., director of workforce and career development in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Health, is the co-author of a new book exploring career options for Ph.D. scientists hoping to find work outside academe.
ReSearch: A Career Guide for Scientists, published in May by Academic Press, is a career planning guide and practical tool for graduate students and postdocs. ReSearch includes chapters on the basics of career planning, determining unique selling points, and navigating work-life concerns.
The book was recently reviewed in Science Careers, a newsletter produced by Science magazine.
The reviewer said the authors “draw on their personal and professional experience helping Ph.D. students make career transitions to answer a large number of fine-grained questions—some of which probably wouldn’t occur to job seekers until late in the game.”
Dr. Evans is a graduate of UT Health San Antonio where she received her Ph.D. in neuroscience in 2014. She is a faculty member in the Department of Pharmacology.
