Materials for Early Career Researchers and Their Supervisors
These materials are collected by Leslie Hogben
of Iowa State University
and the American Institute of Mathematics. They originated from a
mathematical perspective but should be usable with minor adjustment
and with more editing in social sciences; they may be less
a lot of editing for arts and humanities.
In some cases they were
developed by others (whom I have credited) but in all cases I have
edited them and am responsible for any errors. Suggestions for
improvement are welcome. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with
"Early Career Materials" as the subject. Additional materials are

Curriculum Vitae (CV) TemplateThis is derived from LaTeX created by Seth Selken.
Comment out any heading where you have nothing to record and add
additional headings as needed.
This template is for a
research-oriented CV in STEM academia for a junior researcher (graduate
student or postdoc). Use by more senior researchers will likely
entail more editing of the categories. To create a
teaching-oriented CV reorder the categories and add more teach-focused
headings (e.g., curriculum development).
Graduate Student Progress Report Template
This MS Word document is adapted from an ISU Mathematics online form
for graduate students. Red text should be edited before the form
Mentoring Plan Templates
These MS Word documents are adapted from ones I created for use with my
own graduate students and postdocs. They can be used by an
advisor (or a student/postdoc can ask their advisor/sponsor to use
something like this). Red text is mostly suggestions for
discussion that will be replaced by actual content.
