What is the NIEHS Biomedical Career Symposium?
The annual NIEHS Biomedical Career Symposium, now in its 22nd year, is one of the largest assemblies of biomedical organizations and young scientists in Research Triangle Park, NC. Targeting postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, the Career Symposium provides young scientists with an opportunity to explore a myriad of career options and create a contact network as they plan for their future careers in the biomedical sciences. There will be a variety of workshops and career panel discussions.
Speaker: Stephanie Eberle, M.Ed.
Affiliation: BioSci Careers, Stanford University
Keynote Address: "Reimagining Fit: Moving Toward Personal and Professional Congruence"
Stephanie K. Eberle is Assistant Dean of the BioSci Careers at Stanford University where they and their team support the academic, personal, career, and profession needs of M.D./Ph.D. students and postdoctoral trainees in the biosciences and technology fields. Within this position, they teach immersive, sector-specific courses, oversee the graduate IDP program, serve on the Dean's Gender and Sexual Minorities taskforce, and build individualized connection opportunities between the Stanford community and alumni and employer partners.
Stephanie began their tenure at the Stanford School of Medicine in 2008 when the career community was still nascent. In this role, they created new curriculum and resources for all biosciences trainees to explore and define paths toward their preferred careers of choice. Prior to that, Stephanie was part of Stanford's central Career Development Center (now BEAM), counseling and developing career programming for graduate students and postdocs from various disciplines across campus. They previously held adjunct faculty positions within the University of San Francisco's Marriage and Family Counseling program and the Stanford Graduate School of Education.
Stephanie regularly writes for Inside Higher Education, including essays on passion, managing career advice overload, and activism in the workplace. Additional contributions to the field include: co-writing a text book chapter, presenting at national and international conferences, membership on the Graduate Career Consortium's (GCC) Diversity Committee, and holding the elected position of Vice Chair of the National Postdoctoral Association's Board of Directors. Stephanie consults on diversity and team development issues within companies and organizations throughout the country and is a certified Strengths executive coach. They hold an M.Ed. in Community Agency Counseling, and a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology, both from Ohio University.
Highlights from Stephanie's 25-year career include spending a decade living in, and managing, an all-freshman residence hall, and presenting a TEDx-style talk, Thinking With Your Heart, at the Global Innovation Summit. They have never regretted following their passion of Psychology, despite its circuitous route. When not working, Stephanie is either SCUBA diving, teaching Yoga, playing the drums, or walking Hans the Keeshond.
