CV (Best for Academics)
Most people will progress through a number of roles when pursuing an academic career. These include:
- Research-only role, where the bulk of your time is spent conducting research with limited or no teaching commitment.
- Teaching-only role, where majority of your time is for teaching with little or no time allocated for research.
- Research and teaching position, i.e. a lectureship, where you will be expected to both teach and conduct research.
The route you take will depend on your interests, the funding and opportunities in your subject area and the job market at certain points in your career.
