Sample CV Outlines

Oftentimes you are asked to prepare your CV, but do not have an outline to follow.  Below are sample outlines that you can utilize to start formulating your CV.

In order to keep an updated CV, you will need to include any publications, poster presentations, grants etc. in which you have participated.  We can customize a style for your references so that entries in your CV are uniform.

If you would like a librarian to search for your journal article publications and published abstracts, you can fill out the Request for Publications by HFHS Author or Department form. There is a 1-week turnaround time on publication searches.

If you would like a librarian to review your CV to identify issues with the style, structure or formatting, please contact Stephanie Stebens at for assistance.

SciENcv: A My NCBI Curriculum Vitae Web Application

SciENcv is a web application offered by the National Institutes of Health that assists users with creating a professional profile that can be shared with others and used to create an NIH biographical sketch (biosketch).  Sections available for use in SciENcv are education, employment, research activities, publications, honors, research grants, and other professional contributions.  SciENcv also allows users to list their ORCID iD on the profile.

To create a SciENcv profile, you will need to create/log in to your MyNCBI account.
