I have changed labs 5 times in the past 13 years as a research lab technician. Every time the reason was only because a lab ran out of funding. Unless the recruiter contacts my references, they might think it is due to a personal problem.
So should I mention that the reason was due to a lack of funding on my C.V. and/or cover letter? If so, which one(s)? If not, why not?
These are molecular biology and biochemistry nationally-recognized labs in the U.S.
