Applying for a Job

Each job application requires the preparation of a carefully crafted application package that includes a cover letter and a CV or resume. Academic job applications might require a research statement and teaching philosophy.


COVER LETTER (all jobs)

CV (academia) 

  • CV template (general document)
  • CV example (Laurie Davis, 2009)
  • Keywords: on paper persona – all academic credentials – no page limit – action verbs
  • Videos about CV & Resume Writing can be found HERE.
  • If you prepare an academic promotion package or a grant application you must follow strictly the specific CV guidelines provided. For example, for a promotion at Einstein you should follow this CV format. If you apply for an NIH grant you should acknowledge the standard NIH biosketch format. 

RESUME (industry and other non-academic jobs)

CV & Resume Hybrid (some positions require some sort of hybrid)

Research Statements and Teaching Philosophy (academic jobs)
