Job Skills How should I state honors research work on my resume?

  1. Jan 6, 2009 #1
    I've been doing a conjoint project for my thesis with the school of Biomedical Engr and its affiliate hospital. I've conducted most of my work at the hospital - so I was wondering how I'd list this in my resume.

    As its unpaid research thats a part of my degree - would this be listed under work experience rather than employment? Or should I include a separate heading titled 'research'?

    thanks in advance.

    I generally listed my thesis topic underneath my degrees, with my main adviser(s) listed and committee members. If someone was at another institution, I would include that institution after their name in parenthesis.


    M.S. in Materials Science Aug. 2001
    University of Tall Tales, College of Arts and Sciences Fiction, USA
    Thesis: Fabrication and Characterization of UV-Transparent Oxide Films
    Advisor: Peter E. Powers
    Committee Members: Daniel Boone (University of Kentucky), Will Rogers

    If you have a research section, there is where you could add details.

    (Note: Sorry the formatting sucks, and I don't have time right now to edit further)
