HR for Academic Posts

Postby Alison » Wed Mar 29, 2006 11:28 pm

Hi everyone,

I am looking for an academic post in the UK (the equivalent of tt in North America) and have noticed that a few Universities now have a 'standard HR-esque application form' rather than requesting an academic CV and research proposal.

Is this normal? And does anyone have any insight into the sort of things that should go into an 'Additional Information' box? There is a 'Statement in Support of your application' which I am assuming will be a covering letter/research interests/'fit' into department type of statement.

I just wasn't expecting this kind of form for Academia. Am I being naive? I've been working on my CV and research ideas and this has put me on the back foot.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
