Positions, Scientific Appointments and Honors

List in reverse chronological order all current positions and scientific appointments both domestic and foreign, including affiliations with foreign entities or governments. This includes titled academic, professional, or institutional appointments whether or not remuneration is received, and whether full-time, part-time, or voluntary (including adjunct, visiting, or honorary). High school students and undergraduates may include any previous positions. For individuals who are not currently located at the applicant organization, include the expected position at the applicant organization and the expected start date.

List any relevant academic and professional achievements and honors. In particular:

  • Students, postdoctorates, and junior faculty should include scholarships, traineeships, fellowships, and development awards, as applicable.
  • Clinicians should include information on any clinical licensures and specialty board certifications that they have achieved.
