Guidelines for a Curriculum Vitae

Your CV is an important part of your application and will be assessed by external evaluators as well as by the Chalmers Faculty Appointment Committee. As described in section 4 of the Chalmers Rules of Procedure for Teaching and Research Faculty, the Faculty Appointment Committee focusses specifically on four categories: research and teaching experience and merits, utilization of your research, and academic citizenship. Details and examples of these four categories are described in sections 4.1 to 4.4 of the Rules of Procedure. It is thus important that your CV includes information on these categories.

Below we present guidelines on how you could structure your CV in order to provide all the necessary information.  Note that all information should be presented in reverse chronological order.

  • Contact information, including researcher IDs (e.g., ORCID, Scopus ID etc.)
  • Work experience (Current and previous employments)
  • Educational qualifications (including educational degree, date, university, program, name of supervisor)
  • [Deductible time, e.g., parental and extended sick leave, if relevant]
  • Research grants (including funding agency, time period, amounts and role as e.g., principle investigator (PI) or co-PI)
  • Supervision experience (including student name, role, university, time period; separate the student levels. In the case of many BSc or MSc level students, these can be summarised. For certain positions, this can also include the number of postdocs supervised.)
  • Teaching experience (including your role, course, university [if other that your current university], time period, student level, approximate number of students)
    • If the application includes a pedagogical portfolio with the detailed information, a summary will be sufficient in your CV.
  • Pedagogical courses taken for education in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (for applications without a pedagogical portfolio)
  • Functions and commissions of trust (separated, if relevant, into academic tasks within home university, academic tasks beyond home university, and academic leadership tasks)
    • These include e.g., reviewing for journals or funding agencies, selection committees, extern evaluator, thesis committees, board memberships, leadership positions, conference organisation etc. (See section 4.4 in the Rules of Procedure)
  • Invited presentations/reviews/lectures (summarize and include only selected highlights if there are many)
  • Utilization of your research outside of academia and outreach experience (if relevant; see section 4.3 in the Rules of Procedure)
  • Patents (if relevant)
  • Membership of large collaborations, scientific or professional organisations etc.
  • Other
    • e.g., Merits such as prizes and awards, experiences relevant for the position (e.g., computational experience), other relevant courses/training
  • Publications lists: 
    • Divided into peer reviewed/non peer reviewed journal articles, conference contributions, etc
    • summary of bibliometric information, including the source of this information (note that Chalmers uses Scopus)
    • Highlight your 5 most relevant publications and indicate your role in these
    • For publications with large numbers of co-authors (>20), describe your role in the work and the paper, indicate co-authors who are students you have supervised in this work as well as co-authors who are members of your research group and describe their roles in the work​​
