About the Office

Director of Workforce and Career Development

Dr. Teresa Evans is a graduate of the UT Health Science Center where she received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2014. During her graduate training she worked to build a foundation of career development programming for graduate trainees (graduate students and postdoctoral fellows). These efforts have grown into the Office of Career Development that she now directs. 

As the Director of Workforce and Career Development within the graduate school, Teresa leads monthly workshops that focus on a variety of topics, hosts regional symposia, and holds one-on-one meetings tailored toward a graduate STEM audience. 

Further, as a faculty member in the Department of Pharmacology and an advocate of career development efforts for graduate trainees at the UT System and national society levels, 

Teresa hopes to empower trainees to pursue the career that they find fulfilling and provide the tools trainees need to determine what career path that is.   

The Office of Career Development is housed in Room 232A under the Holly Auditorium. Please feel free to schedule an appointment by emailing

Consulting Philosophy

As a recent graduate and a highly networked STEM professional, I have a breadth and depth of knowledge in careers available to trainees as well as the dynamic biomedical workforce. 

As a certified Career Development Facilitator, I have gained specialized training in career guidance practices and am well suited to provide tailored career guidance. Further, as a faculty member within an academic institution and an academic administrator, I can help you to consider the breadth and depth of challenges faced by those interested in pursuing a career both inside and outside of academia. 

In closing, I am a military spouse, puppy lover, and young professional woman who is working to grow my own network and career for the betterment of those whom I consult. 

For these and many other reasons, I am poised to guide you through the process of integrating your own career into a well-balanced and fulfilling life.
