Simple and Straightforward

Zen Faulkes at NeuroDojo offers tips for applicants to strengthen their CVs from the search committee's perspective. Since "one of the first things people are going to do is count your publications," Faulkes advises that applicants display them prominently, rather than "five pages back." While listing manuscripts "in preparation" is generally acceptable, he says that doing so can sometimes seem deceiving. "If people think at first you have 10 publications, then realize three are in preparation, they'll feel [you've] misled them," Faulkes says. As an added consideration for the search committee, applicants asked to provide their CVs in PDF form ought to embed links to their papers, Faulkes suggests.
