A LaTeX template for a CV

Published on 27 November 2010

Every researcher needs a Cur­ricu­lum Vitae (Latin for “course of life”) or CV. You will need it for job appli­ca­tions, for annual per­for­mance appraisal, and just for keep­ing track of your pub­li­ca­tions. A CV typ­i­cally con­tains lists of achieve­ments includ­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions, pub­li­ca­tions, pre­sen­ta­tions, awards, plus teach­ing experience.

I’ve cre­ated a LaTeX style for a CV to make it easy to pro­duce some­thing that looks good and is easy to main­tain. You will need an up-​​to-​​date imple­men­ta­tion of LaTeX because I’m using the won­der­ful bibla­tex pack­age (more on that in another post) which has only just become avail­able as part of Mik­TeX and TeXLive.

The pre­am­ble of your CV should look some­thing like this:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article}
\usepackage{cv}
\name{Rob J Hyndman}
\info{Address: & Department of Econometrics \& Business Statistics, Monash University, VIC 3800, Australia.\\
      Phone: & +61 3 9905 2358\\
      Email: & Rob.Hyndman@monash.edu\\
      WWW: & robjhyndman.com}
 
\bibliography{rjhpubs}
 
\addtocategory{books}{MWH3,ITSM91,ITSM94,expsmooth08}
\addtocategory{papers}{BHG91,BH92,YW93,Hyndman94,HDRF95}
\addtocategory{papers}{HDR96,HBG96,HF96,GHH97,HW97,LFSH97,GH98}
  • Include your name in the \name command.
  • The \info com­mand con­tains infor­ma­tion to go in the header box on the first page. This is struc­tured as for a tab­u­lar envi­ron­ment. You can include any infor­ma­tion you like in the \info com­mand includ­ing addi­tional rows. Some peo­ple include their date of birth, cit­i­zen­ship, fam­ily details, etc.
  • All your pub­li­ca­tions should be in a bib file (mine is called rjhpubs.bib) loaded with the \bibliography command.
  • The final three lines allo­cate items from the bib file to cat­e­gories. These will appear in sep­a­rate sec­tions in the CV. My real CV has sev­eral more lines like these so that all my pub­li­ca­tions are added to cat­e­gories. Each of the codes is the key for a bib item.
  • The style file has the fol­low­ing pre-​​defined cat­e­gories:
    books Books
    papers Ref­er­eed research papers
    chap­ters Book chap­ters
    con­fer­ences Papers in con­fer­ence proceedings
    techre­ports Unpub­lished work­ing papers
    bookre­views Book reviews
    edi­to­ri­als Edi­to­ri­als
    phd PhD the­sis
    sub­pa­pers Sub­mit­ted papers
    cur­pa­pers Cur­rent projects

    It is easy to add your own cat­e­gories and titles if these are not suit­able. For exam­ple, if you want to include posters in your CV, put the fol­low­ing in the preamble:

    \makebibcategory{posters}{Conference posters}
  • After the pre­am­ble, my CV looks like this:
    \begin{document}
    \maketitle
     
    \section{Education and Qualifications}
    \begin{tabular}{lll}
    1988 & B.Sc.(Hons) & University of Melbourne\\
    1992 & Ph.D. & University of Melbourne\\
    2000 & A.Stat. & Statistical Society of Australia.
    \end{tabular}

    The \maketitle puts in the header box. After that it is a nor­mal LaTeX doc­u­ment with \section com­mands for each section.

  • It is com­mon to have sec­tions list­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions, employ­ment his­tory, awards, research grants, teach­ing expe­ri­ence and pub­li­ca­tions. The order of these varies depend­ing on what you want to empha­sise. Have a look at sev­eral CVs to see what other peo­ple do. Here are some exam­ples from some well-​​known sta­tis­ti­cians: Andrew Gel­man, Rob Tib­shi­rani, Matt Wand.
  • To add my pub­li­ca­tions, I have the fol­low­ing lines:
    \begin{publications}
    \printbib{books}
    \printbib{papers}
    \printbib{chapters}
    \printbib{conferences}
    \printbib{techreports}
    \printbib{bookreviews}
    \printbib{editorials}
    \end{publications}

    Each \printbib com­mand will add a sec­tion with all the pub­li­ca­tions in that cat­e­gory, listed in chrono­log­i­cal order and sorted by name within each year.

  • The total num­ber of pub­li­ca­tions listed inside the publications envi­ron­ment is cal­cu­lated and the page num­bers for the pub­li­ca­tions sec­tions are stored. So I have the fol­low­ing line in the Research sec­tion of my CV:
    I have authored \ref{sumpapers} papers, chapters or books on statistical topics. A list of these appears on pages \pageref{papersstart}--\pageref{papersend}.

    You can have addi­tional \printbib com­mands out­side the pub­li­ca­tions envi­ron­ment, but the asso­ci­ated bib items will not be counted in the sumpapers value.

Here is my CV using this style file (although I use dif­fer­ent fonts from those loaded in the style file).

Down­load the style file and use it your­self. Feel free to mod­ify it as you want.

Update: I’ve mod­i­fied the style file to take account of changes in bibla­tex. The lat­est ver­sion is dated 24 July 2013.

    There was a small bug in the first ver­sion, now fixed. If you down­loaded ear­lier today, please do so again. Sorry.

  • Vlad

    Thanks, it looks good!

  • nan qu

    Is it pos­si­ble to sort pub­li­ca­tions in reverse chrono­log­i­cal order?

    Thanks.

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      Yes. Replace “sorting=ynt” by “sorting=ydnt” in cv.sty.

  • http://www.cvtemplate.net/ CV Tem­plate

    Highly rec­om­mended, thanks for shar­ing such an excel­lent stuff with us.

  • Lin­wei

    Thank you Rob for shar­ing this.
    I have encoun­tered two minor errors:
    1) The ?? is higher than the actural num­ber by one;
    2) For the book chap­ter bib­li­og­ra­phy, it shows this a sequence: … book ‘title’ in ‘chap­ter’ …
    I won­der if it is just my prob­lem some­where else. I am a new LaTex user.

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman
      1. Oh dear. Sorry about that. It’s now fixed. Please down­load the new ver­sion.
      2. You have prob­a­bly switched the fields in the bib file. A book chap­ter should be part of an inbook record. The “title” field should con­tain the chap­ter title and the “book­ti­tle” field should con­tain the book title.
  • Lin­wei

    Thanks a lot!

  • Daniele

    Very nice. I’ll sure still part of it for my own CV. How­ever I think it would be worth to say that in the PDF file you show as an exam­ple you used dif­fer­ent fonts than in the .sty file you pro­vide. It took me a while (I know I’m dumb) to under­stand why I was get­ting a dif­fer­ent look.

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      I’ve now added a com­ment about the fonts. Thanks for point­ing it out.

  • Lin­wei Tian

    Hi Bob,
    Is there a way to high­light cer­tain author names in the bib­li­og­ra­phy? Say, I may want my name in bold font. Many thanks.

    • MYaseen208

      Hello,

      Yes you can high­light cer­tain author names in the bib­li­og­ra­phy. If you want to put cer­tain names in bold font use \bold{author name} in your bib file.

      • Lin­wei Tian

        It works. Thanks a lot.
        I used \textbf{author name} in my bib file.

  • Wayne Gray

    Bob,

    Very nice. Thanks for shar­ing. I am still climb­ing the LaTeX pow­er­curve and appre­ci­ate being able to study your .sty file.

    Two dif­fer­ent sorts of ques­tions for you.

    1. For each of the info lines in my header I see: “Address: amp; Cog­ni­tive …” “amp;” — if I delete the “&” then all of the info stuff gets printed in one long line (appar­ently off the page).

    2. I would like to be able to add by-​​year cat­e­gories to my pub­li­ca­tions list. So for con­fer­ence papers, I would like to add the sub­cat­e­gories of “2011”, “2010”, … “pre-​​1990″.

    I could sim­ply edit your .sty file to include these, but they would not appear as sub­cat­e­gories. Plus it would seem more ele­gant (and in keep­ing with your sty file) to have them sort them­selves out. I sus­pect that fig­ur­ing out how to do this would be a good devel­op­men­tal exer­cise for me, but in case this is really easy to do I would appre­ci­ate know­ing how (and sav­ing all that work).

    Cheers,

    Wayne Gray

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      1. The & are nec­es­sary because the top info box is set in tab­u­lar for­mat. There was a for­mat­ting prob­lem with the post which I have now fixed and I think that was caus­ing you prob­lems. The “amp;” bits should be deleted.

      2. The sim­plest way would be to set up new bib cat­e­gories using
      \makebibcategory{2011conf}{2011 Con­fer­ence papers}
      for exam­ple. If you wanted sub­sec­tions under “Con­fer­ence papers” you will have to do some hacking.

  • Jan Tauber

    Thanks for the very nice CV tem­plate.
    I am using Bibla­tex 0.9 and am try­ing to sort ref­er­ences in reverse chrono­log­i­cal order, using sorting=ydnt.
    But it doesn’t seem to work at all…
    Any ideas as to what I could be doing wrong ?
    thanks for any feed­back.
    Jan

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      Use the lat­est ver­sion of bibla­tex. It is now 1.4c.

  • Jian Ma

    Thanks for your very nice CV tem­plate. I like the font you used in your sam­ple, is it kozuka gothic pro? I have a Mac, and I found this font in my com­puter. How to use this font in latex? Thanks for you help.

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      I use Min­ion Pro and Myr­iad Pro. You need to use XeLa­TeX with the fontspec pack­age to com­pile the file. Read the fontspec man­ual to learn how to use addi­tional fonts.

      • Jian Ma

        I see. Thank you! ^_^

  • H P

    Hello,
    Is there some way to get BibLa­TeX to encode the ref­er­ences labels with J for Jour­nals, C for Con­fer­ences, and so on? In addi­tion, refer­ring to them would use these J1, C1 sort of citations?

    Thanks.

  • Mar­i­ana

    Hi!

    Thanks for the great tem­plate. It looks great. I was won­der­ing if it’s pos­si­ble to have a pic­ture in the header. I am a basic user, so I don’t really know how to mess with the style file…

    Thanks!

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      You could over­lay a pic­ture using the textpos pack­age. Oth­er­wise, you might just have to hack the sty file.

  • tonyv

    Hi Rob
    Thanks for the CV tem­plate, but I am hav­ing a prob­lem get­ting it to run, as I am get­ting an unde­fined con­trol sequence at line 153 which is defbibenvironment{bibliography}
    I’m using ubuntu and have all the required pack­ages as far as I can tell, but I’m still new to latex. Any suggestions?

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      bibla­tex had changed some of its pack­age options which meant my cv style file was bro­ken. I’ve now updated it and it should work with the lat­est ver­sion of bibla­tex (v1.6).

  • tonyv

    Thanks Rob, I down­loaded the new style sheet but I’m still get­ting the same error mes­sage. The file looks like the same cv.sty that I was using — says updated 27 Novem­ber 2010?

  • Patrick Widener

    Very nice. I’ve been accom­plish­ing this trick by con­vert­ing bib­tex to XML with Python, and then using XSLT trans­for­ma­tions to gen­er­ate dif­fer­ent out­puts: LaTeX for CV inclu­sion, HTML for my web page, and DocuWiki. That way my pubs list on my web page and my CV are always in sync.

    I wasn’t aware of bibla­tex, though, and this is so sim­ple that I might just ditch my cur­rent setup and just pro­vide a PDF CV on the web page.

  • tonyv

    Rob
    I’ve noticed in your cv that the author ini­tials are mixed between after the first sur­name, then before the sur­name for sub­se­quent authors, as per your ref 33:
    Hyn­d­man, R. J., M. L. King, I. Pitrun, and M. B. Bil­lah etc
    Is there a way to change this so that all are after the sur­name?
    Thanks

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      This is a style issue. It is eas­ily changed by edit­ing the bib­li­og­ra­phy style. Read the bibla­tex man­ual for details.

  • Enrico Bertini

    I just used it for my CV. I needed only a very few tweaks here and there. Thanks a lot!!!

  • MYaseen208

    Nice CV tem­plate. I won­der how to omit or change date. I tried \date{} but it did not work. Any sug­ges­tion. Thanks

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      The date is inserted using \today. So you could just rede­fine it. For exam­ple, to omit the date, put in the pre­am­ble
      \def\today{}

      • MYaseen208

        Thanks a lot. It works fine.

  • Malak Bokhari

    I have been try­ing to open the file with texshop. So I down­load the link as .sty and save in ~library/​texmf/​tex/​latex/​misc folder. But when I try and open with teashop, it doesn’t work. It keeps open­ing an older tem­plate for AMS. Can you please give detailed instruc­tions for mac users. Thank you

  • http://naveda.info/ Luiz Naveda

    Hi Rob,

    Many thanks for your initiative!As far as I under­stood you have to place the citekey of the pub­li­ca­tions in advance in order to place the items in your CV. Have you though about look­ing at an cus­tom bib­tex field and per­form this action auto­mat­i­cally via bib­tex edi­tor? For exam­ple, I have all my cv items orga­nized and I defined the bib­tex field “series” as the main clas­si­fier of my cv items. So I have “Invited lec­ture, Pub­li­ca­tion in Pro­ceed­ings, etc” and these items are used in my actual cv (http://​naveda​.info/​c​u​r​r​i​culum). It would be really inter­est­ing to just define a field and then the style adds all citekeys or items automatically.I was going to try it but maybe you already have it implemented.Many thanks for your advices…I am actu­ally look­ing for a job after my PhD and despite I con­sider my PhD a suc­cess I is not reflect­ing in good job oppor­tu­ni­ties in Brazil…Luiz Naveda 

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      Hi Luiz. Yes, that is pos­si­ble. I’ve done it using the field “key­words” in the bib entry and then 
      printbibliography[heading=reports,keyword=consulting]
      to print out all my con­sult­ing reports with­out hav­ing to list their citekeys. See the bibla­tex man­ual for infor­ma­tion on using key­words. I think you can do it using other clas­si­fiers such as cat­e­gory as well.

      • http://naveda.info/ Luiz Naveda

        Thanks, Rob!

        It is a good start­ing point! I keep you informed if I man­age to go for­ward.
        Best
        Luiz

      • http://naveda.info/ Luiz Naveda

        This is per­fect!!! You should include it in your pack­age! For art/​science CV’s like mine it makes a great difference!

        • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

          Glad it worked. There’s noth­ing to include in the pack­age. Just edit your bib file accord­ingly and use the key­word argu­ment when using printbibliography.

  • Wayne Gray

    Rob,

    Thanks again for shar­ing your tem­plate. I would like to use parts of it with the apa6 doc­u­ment class but have hit the lim­its of my LaTeX skills on this. I espe­cially like your header and the sec­tion head­ings but my simple-​​minded attempts to cre­ate a mod­i­fied style sheet have hit the wall. I sus­pect there are depen­den­cies that you are set­ting that Bibla­Tex and APA6 are also set­ting. But there is a sim­ple ques­tion embed­ded in this com­ment; namely, how would I mod­ify your file so that the cita­tions show us as “Gray, W. D. (2012) etc” rather than as “W. D. Gray (2012) etc”.

    Thanks,

    Wayne Gray

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      I don’t know any­thing about apa6. The bib­li­og­ra­phy style is con­trolled with bibla­tex. It gives bib items of the form “Gray, W.D. (2012)” as you require. It is only the sec­ond and sub­se­quent authors whose the ini­tials are placed before their sur­names. If you want all ini­tials after sur­names, you need to change the bib­style from authoryear-​​comp to some­thing else.

  • The­jesh Bandi

    Hi Rob,
    Firstly, thank you for the class file, the lay­out is really nice.
    I have two ques­tions:
    1. The pub­li­ca­tion list is not dis­played on my CV. Yes, I did fol­low the steps of proper com­pi­la­tion on Tex­studio.
    2. As my table con­tent is too long, towards the end of the page it goes invis­i­ble.
    Please sug­gest what should I do to get them right.
    Thank you,
    Thejesh

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      1. TexStudio’s Quick­Build does not always run bib­tex for some rea­son. Some­times you need to bib­tex the file your­self.
      2. Use the longtable package.

  • The­jesh Bandi

    Thank you Rob. Bingo! It works now.

    Great work. I have started using this.  I have a cou­ple of ques­tions:
    1. Can you for pub­li­ca­tion 1. .… have a nested sub­list of cita­tions with sub­sub­sec­tion like title : “Cited in Sco­pus by:” fol­lowed by a list gen­er­ated by a nest­ed­print­bib com­mand?
    2. Can you have a counter for each print­bib com­mand to gen­er­ate out­put like - This publ­ci­a­tion is cited in Sco­pus ref{scopuscitationssumpapers} times details appear on pages pageref{scopuscitationrsstart}–pageref{scopuscitationssend}
     
    One could put these nested bib­li­ogra­phies in a com­ment sec­tion and track them.
     
    I do not have great expe­ri­ence with latex but am will­ing to try mod­i­fy­ing the .sty file if some­one could give me point­ers.

    Sir, thank you for this cv tem­plate, it looks great. How­ever, I want to edit some­thing that is already decided in the “cv.sty” file, for exam­ple, under the name we can see the two words: “Cur­ricu­lum Vitae”, and I want to alter it to “Resume”, what shall I do?

    • http://robjhyndman.com Rob J Hyndman

      Load cv.sty in a text edi­tor. Find the part where the words “Cur­ricu­lum Vitae” are used and change them to what­ever you prefer.

    How­ever, I can’t com­pile my .tex file. It says: Pack­age key­val error: defer­num­bers unde­fined. Should I include other pack­ages than cv? I checked on inter­net, and as far as I under­stand, this key­val pack­age is part of graph­icx, which I often use. I com­pile with PDFLa­TeX from tex­maker. But I admit, I’m not very famil­iar with LaTeX.

    hi, thanks for shar­ing the tem­plate, really appreciated.

    thanks,

      That is set by the thispagestyle{plain} com­mand. Find the rel­e­vant line in cv.sty and change it to thispagestyle{empty} to have no page number.

  • Rense

    Thanks for cre­at­ing this. It works per­fectly. I ran into one sin­gle (and in the end: sim­ple) issue that other users may find use­ful. At some point the CV ren­dered nicely, except it didn’t show any of my pub­li­ca­tions. In the end, this was caused by hav­ing the same pub­li­ca­tion listed twice in the pre-​​amble (say, both in con­fer­ence and in jour­nal arti­cle). This mis­be­hav­iour broke the tem­plate. Of course, this is eas­ily solved, but per­haps good to know.

    Dear Sir,

    How should the style file be saved. Should it be saved with .sty extn.

    regards,

    AG.

      The file is called cv.sty. You can change the name, but leave the exten­sion as sty.

    Hi Rob,

    Thanks for shar­ing this. I see that the name of Pub­lisher does not appear in the jour­nal arti­cles. It does how­ever appear in the pro­ceed­ings. If this is due to authoryear-​​comp, do you know a replace­ment for it that shows the publisher’s name?

    All the best,

      The advan­tage of using bibla­tex is that it is easy to mod­ify the styles. If you don’t like the style I’ve used, then just edit it accord­ingly. Try read­ing the bibla­tex man­ual for details.

    First, thanks for your style­file. I am miss­ing though a state­ment how much of the stan­dard bibla­tex com­mands are still pos­si­ble to do and if the use of cat­e­gories is manda­tory? E.g. my dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories are in dif­fer­ent bib­tex files and I would like to make ALL entries of each dif­fer­ent bib­tex file part of the cat­e­gory of this bib­tex file. How can I accom­plish that with your style file, please? Happy Thanksgiving!

      Use what­ever bibla­tex com­mands you like.

    I just found this tem­plate. Cheerful.

    there is one prob­lme I haven’t fig­ured out. when I use my bib file gen­er­ated by Mende­ley, it shows me three errors.

    1. no cita­tion com­mands
    2. no bib­data com­mand
    3. no bib­style command

    how can I fix these errors? is the prob­lem from my bib file, or other?

    • zhan­sheng

      one more information:

      begin{publications}

      printbib{papers}

      end{publications}

      it shows me “empty bib­li­og­ra­phy”. where is the problem?

      • zhan­sheng

        I have fig­ured it out. Call biber!

    Can you please upload a work­ing .tex file for the CV. That will make it eas­ier for us. Many thanks

    • http://robjhyndman.com/ Rob J Hyndman

      I’ve given you most of it in the snip­pets above. Surely you can do the rest yourself.

    Thank you Prof. Hyn­d­man for pro­vid­ing such a nice tem­plate, I got one prob­lem when using it: the para­graph within each sec­tion is not fully jus­ti­fied. Where can I mod­ify the .sty file to fix it?

    Rob, thank you very much for shar­ing this very help­ful tem­plate. I have been using it with­out prob­lems for about a year. Recently, I updated texlive to texlive 2013, all pack­ages are installed and up to date. When I changed and com­piled my CV (biber, pdf­tex), all pub­li­ca­tion years have dis­ap­peared in the bib­li­og­ra­phy at the end ot the CV.

    I played with the bibla­tex option ‘label­date’, which is a replace­ment for the dep­re­cated option ‘labelyear’, and this is what I get:

    1. labeldate=false: Bib­li­og­ra­phy con­tains no pub­li­ca­tion dates: e.g. ‘Myname Title’

    2. labeldate=true: Bib­li­og­ra­phy con­tains pub­li­ca­tion dates BUT ambigous entries are dis­am­biguated using labels. E.g.: ‘Myname (2000a) Title…’, ‘Myname (2000b) Title’…

    Using ‘labelyear’ instead of ‘label­date’ does not affect this behavior.

    Could you please tell me how to get rid of the labels? I would appre­ci­ate any help on this.

    Best,
    Steffen

      This has hap­pened due to changes in bibla­tex. You just need to include
      DeclareFieldFormat{extrayear}{}

      in the pre­am­ble to remove the label.

      I’ve updated cv.sty to include this, plus a cou­ple of other changes to the bibla­tex section.

    Thanks Rob for this tem­plate. How­ever, I am not able to print out the pub­li­ca­tions sec­tion. I put all my pub­li­ca­tions in a bib file. Then, I use some­thing like this as you posted:

    bibliography{rjhpubs}
    addtocategory{papers}{BHG91,BH92,YW93,Hyndman94,HDRF95}

    But when it arrives at:

    begin{publications}
    printbib{papers}
    end{publications}

    A warn­ing says: Empty bib­li­og­ra­phy … and when I check the gen­er­ated bbl file is in fact empty. How­ever, my bib file is not.

    Then, I tried to run bib­tex alone and I get these errors:

    This is Bib­TeX, Ver­sion 0.99d (MiK­TeX 2.9)
    The top-​​level aux­il­iary file: aob_vita.aux
    I found no cita­tion commands—while read­ing file aob_vita.aux
    I found no bib­data command—while read­ing file aob_vita.aux
    I found no bib­style command—while read­ing file aob_vita.aux
    (There were 3 error messages)

    Could you advice on this issue? I am using XeLa­tex, by the way. When I remove the bib­li­og­ra­phy com­mands, then the cv is com­piled cor­rectly.
    Thanks,
    Alejandro.

    Nice one. Used your tem­plate, with some lit­tle mod­i­fi­ca­tion get­ting it into desired scene. Thanks
