Listing research as work experience

Recommended Posts

The life exp and achievements sections for UofA lists research as a potential option. I'm currently a graduate student with lots of research output (publications, conferences, etc.). Does it make sense to list research outputs under achievements and then also list my time at the lab under work exp? Or would that be redundant?

I got in this year doing that. Basically for my work experience I spoke briefly about my project and then talked about what I learnt from it, and in the life experience section I had one entry where I spoke about all the research achievements I had (pubs, major presentations, major awards).

What would one do in the case of having a lot of research experience/awards (conference presentations, studentships, publications, general lab experince) distributed over multiple labs? Given that you can only have two verifiers per entry, how could you list extensive research achievements and experience distributed over more than two labs?

Not 100% sure, but presumably your verifier (I believe UofA only contacts verifier 2 if they don't hear back from verifier 1) would be comfortable verifying stuff they didn't directly oversee in this case. Wouldn't it be easy for your current PI to verify that you presented somewhere/received a studentship/published a paper in another lab?

I just put my current supervisor as the verifier for all my research outputs because she is aware of my earlier pubs, awards, etc.

That's awesome, just what I was looking for. And congrats!
