There are many kinds of academic CVs. When applying for grants, awards, or other opportunities, having a remarkable CV that meets reader expectations and puts your best foot forward can make all the difference. The workshop offered by Professor Janet Elliott, Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, will focus on expected elements, techniques and strategies for writing different kinds of academic CVs. Dr. Elliott has served on academic hiring committees, Faculty Evaluation Committee, national and university level award selection committees, and national grant review panels for NSERC, CIHR, NIH, and the Canadian Space Agency, and has contributed to the university’s internal processes for CIHR and NSERC grants and Canada Research Chairs.

Other possible forums in the next year:

  • Media communications and writing research summaries
  • Teaching design in the faculty
  • Creating a faculty culture of mentorship: how to be a mentor and a mentee (two separate forums)
