Academic CV template

If you’re an Academic and are applying for a Professor role or you're searching for funding for your next all-important project, our Academic CV example is an ideal foundation. It has sections for publications and patents if you have any, and these can be changed accordingly for other activities such as supervisions, projects, media involvements or speaking engagements.

One of the main points to remember about CVs is to advertise yourself as best you can in that first paragraph, so that potential employers will want to keep reading.
