Faculty Profile and eCV

eCV is the database that feeds the faculty profiles in the Jacobs SMBS and department websites. It can also automatically create custom CVs for promotion and tenure requirements, and NIH Biosketches.

Entering your information into the eCV database automatically builds your online faculty profile, and gives you a powerful tool to create custom CVs for your own purposes and NIH biosketches. You only have to enter your information once to gain access to all its benefits.

Core Components

Fill in all these fields to create an eCV that will provide visitors with the main information they want:

  • title
  • terminal degree (in the suffix field of the biographical section)
  • education
  • publications
  • grants
  • research focus area/specialty
  • presentations and professional membership
  • the  “biographical sketch,” a 300-word professional summary

Review your data in eCV regularly to make sure your contact information, awards, grants, and other data stay current.

Visual Guides

These guides show your faculty profiles as they appear on the medical school and UBMD websites, with the main eCV menu alongside them. Color-coded numbers map the elements of your faculty profile to items as they appear in the eCV menu.

The color-coded elements highlight the sections of your eCV that are published in your faculty profiles.
