Curriculum Vitae

A curriculum vitae, or CV, is typically used when applying for research and/or teaching positions in academia.

The principal difference between a resume and a CV is that a CV is typically longer (two or more pages) and includes more comprehensive information about a candidate’s research background, presentations, publications, committee memberships and other experience of an academic, clinical, and/or scientific nature.
