What makes Scientific CVs different?
We advise that you include slightly different information in a scientific CV but the format can stay the same as other graduate CVs. Remember you can access advice on general graduate CV's via the resources section of the website.
- Conferences attended- have you attended or presented at any scientific conferences whilst you have been a student?
- Papers published – has any of your research undertaken during the summer or as a PG student been published/ has the potential to be published?
- Professional Bodies - are you student member of the Royal Society of Biology or British Ecological Society or Royal Society of Chemistry?
- Techniques- what technical skills have you developed in the laboratory our out in the field? What machines have you had experience of within the laboratory? Are you familiar with certain techniques used in the lab?
- Research Interests- if you are interested in pursuing an academic career you will need to include your research interests in your CV.
- Research skills- have you independently developed a research project? Did you have to bid for funding? What software have you used to analyse your data?
- Teaching experience- as a post graduate student have you had any experience in demonstrating or teaching undergraduate students? Perhaps you have experience or working with school pupils within outreach work you have undertaken?
