Academic CVs and Biosketches
Tuesday, March 28, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EDT
A CV is an essential document in the academic sphere. CVs are frequently required to apply for funding, awards, and academic positions. A well-organized and comprehensive CV can elevate your application by clearly communicating your achievements and track record of productivity.
Biographical sketches, or biosketches, are also often required for different types of funding applications. While biosketches may share many elements that you might find in a CV, they are also quite distinct and prescriptive depending on the funding source.
This session will cover:
- the various sections of a CV and recommendations for organization
- best practices for describing your experiences and achievements for maximum impact
- how a biosketch differs from a CV
- how to find appropriate biosketch templates
