    Did the projects lead to publications? – user37208 Nov 22 '16 at 3:07

    I've seen people use subheadings under each research position they have, where they briefly describe the projects they worked on, principal contributions. Usually just at the level of bullets. – AJK Nov 22 '16 at 3:10
  • These projects were basically Govt sponsored projects with many research themes. My adviser was the PI of one theme. Yes, we had published few results in peer-reviewed journal. – Kay Nov 22 '16 at 4:00

    If it's published then it should be included in the section about publication which is enough. Other than that I'm using a separate "research overview" file, where I describe all the different topics I've worked in on a few pages. – DSVA Nov 23 '16 at 0:49

I would suggest a section entitled "Research Highlights". Then, point-wise, a single sentence describing the main research result of each highlight. Maximum impact would be firsts and records set, e.g. "First to measure the effect of X upon Y"; "Discovery of correlation between W and Z"; "Tightest limits set on parameter R", etc.
