This is a CV template for academic posts, especially lectureships. It is designed as a model and a basis for your own academic CV. 

There is no need to include a personal statement on an academic CV. Start by describing your relevant qualifications.

Depending on whether the job you are going for prioritises teaching or research you may wish to bring a different section to the top of your CV and put more emphasis on it. But for lectureship CVs you will need to include details of your teaching, research, funding successes and administration experience.

Do not forget to include the contact details for two referees at the end.
