How do I formulate research interests in my CV? When talking about my field, I like to include some context, such as:
The climate of planet Earth is a complex system. Detailed observations are needed for improving our understanding of individual components and their interaction. Additionally, long-term, large-scale monitoring is required to study the climate system in its entirety. Observations from space are important for both kinds of observations. I am particularly interested in applying space-based observations the atmosphere, for example, for the hydrological cycle. Additionally, I think foo is important because of bar, and would like to research foo deeper.
But on a CV, space and attention are scarce. An alternative would be:
- Space-based observations of the atmosphere
But this appears a bit bald to me. I think the context, the motivation, should be relevant: why are my research interests as they are?
What is a better alternative for describing research interests on a CV?
