I am first year post-doctoral fellow. I have been asked to carry out some marking duties by my PhD supervisor from another university which I am not currently affiliated with, but where I got my PhD from.

Can I mention this marking duty under my teaching experience on my academic CV?

  • Why are you doing grading for another university? – Azor Ahai Apr 12 at 19:22

You can mention it, but there is no benefit to doing so. Your marking and grading experience is not important to hiring decisions.


If it is your only teaching experience, you might want to mention it. If you are doing it in a non-native language that you have no other documentation of using, you might want mention it.

Otherwise, it might make a very weak case that you have connections to that university in particular, but presumably that is clear, since it is your PhD institute.
