Ph.D. Job Seekers

In the United States, a Curriculum Vitae (CV) is a summary of an individual’s educational and academic experiences. It is more comprehensive than a résumé and can be more than one page. It can include anything that a resume consists of, with the additional sections of research experience, presentations at conferences, publications, teaching experience, and references. A CV is most often used to apply for faculty positions in higher education, for research-intensive positions at national labs or research institutes, and for fellowships, grants or awards (Source: Office of Intramural Training & Education: National Institutes of Health). Other countries’ CV guidelines can differ — some would want you to include a professional photo, your nationality, date of birth, marital status and other personal information. Some organizations of the world would want you to apply with a CV rather than a résumé. Be sure to be cognizant of the company or institution you are applying to and the location.
