CRA’s CV Database is now accepting materials from graduating PhD students for the 2023-2024 recruitment season!
Please encourage PhD students who are set to graduate this academic year to post their credentials to the CRA CV Database. Graduating students are encouraged to upload their materials no later than November 1 to maximize their visibility to recruiters.
What is the CV Database?
The Computing Research Association (CRA) launched the CV Database initiative in Fall 2018 with the goal of helping to address recruiting challenges in the computing research community. This initiative provides a database of candidates for academic and industrial/government laboratory research positions, and it is searchable by most CRA member institutions.
This resource can be used to match those recruiting computing researchers with candidates for academic and industrial/government laboratory positions.
Why should graduating PhD students participate?
Recruiters actively use the database to find suitable candidates for academic or industrial/government laboratory research positions, including:
- Faculty positions in a research university
- Faculty positions in a non-PhD granting university
- Teaching-focused positions in a research university
- Full-time positions in an industrial or government research lab
- Postdoc positions in an academic institution
- Postdoc positions in an industrial or government research lab
Candidates can upload their CVs, research and teaching statements, job objectives, other preferences, and a link to a short presentation video. Recruiters are able to search the information posted and contact candidates directly to encourage them to apply for positions.
Who can access the database as a recruiter?
Hiring officers who are from CRA academic member institutions and select industry/government member institutions have access to search the CRA CV database. They may then contact candidates about their open positions.
How do graduating PhD students participate?
PhD-level candidates for academic and industrial/government laboratory positions can upload their credentials, job objectives and preferences, and a link to a presentation video through this website. Candidates may remove their information at any time.
To maximize visibility to recruiters, graduating PhD students are encouraged to upload their materials no later than November 1.
