British and Canadian CV-writers will note that the font is larger, the length is greater, the margins wider, and the white spaces more abundant than you may be used to. These are contract positions only– tenure track or instructorships.
These are the typical norms for American CVs (again, admitting of enormous variation among fields and individuals). Ad hoc adjunct gigs do not go here; only contracted positions of 1 years in length. Give institution, department, title, and dates (year only) of employment.
While the CV genre permits a wide range of variation, and there is no consensus on the value or desirability of one particular style, I am going to present a list of expectations that govern my own work at The Professor Is In.
These expectations will produce a highly-readable, well-organized CV on the American academic model. This must go immediately under education, assuming that you have/had these. Because the reader must be able to instantly “place” you institutionally.
When you produce is as important as what you produce. Do not spell out Doctor of Philosophy, etc.; it’s pretentious. If they are in press, they can be listed here with “in press” in place of the year. Subheadings: Panels Organized, Papers Presented, Discussant. These entries will include: Name of paper, name of conference, date. Month and date-range of conference in the entry itself (ie, March 22-25).
