The Graduate School for Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center is committed to helping our students and postdoctoral appointees achieve their ultimate goal: a promising and successful career in science. Our career development resources are intended to prepare students and postdocs in the biomedical sciences for careers in academic research and beyond.

We provide resources and opportunities including seminars, workshops, and one-on-one advising appointments, with the goal of helping individuals:

  • Identify and develop the practical skills required for a range of science careers
  • Prepare for the academic job search
  • Explore occupations and industries beyond academic research, and
  • Assess and reflect upon personal factors including values, strengths, and skills in order to assist in choosing a career path.

Keep in mind that there is no single path to take to find the right career. Identifying your career options, interests, and preferences is up to you, so take advantage of career resources at UTSW.
