This is a CV template for research project manager posts, either in an academic, public sector or commercial environment. It is designed as a model and a basis for your own CV.
Start with a summary of your research experience/aims. This is the equivalent of a personal statement but is specifically designed to summarise your research methodology and plans. Keep this brief, usually only two or three sentences. And keep it simple; do not go into a lot of detail or use confusing jargon.
This CV will prioritise your research history and experience but you also need to mention your educational background and any teaching experience you have.
It is important that you demonstrate that you have expertise in running research projects, so you must show that you have leadership and managerial skills as well as the ability to conduct the research itself.
Do not forget to include the contact details for two referees at the end.
