Once you’ve uploaded your photo why not add a short biography to tell visitors about yourself and your role(s)? This biography will appear on the Overview section of your profile and be one of the first things visitors see:
You may wish to include other sections, such as Research Interests, Industry relevance, Current projects, Funding and/or Teaching Overview and more. Follow the instructions above but see the drop-down list under Type for further options. If you choose not to populate a field, it simply won’t show on your profile.
By default the biography will appear at the top of the page but you change the order of other sections if you wish to make them more prominent by moving them closer to the top of the page.
What information should I include in my biography?
When writing a biography, consider the following:
Job titles are great but remember not everyone is going to know what they mean. Where you give a position title, it's useful to qualify it with a brief explanation of the role.
Avoid writing lists of accomplishments or previous jobs - that is more the realm of a resume.
Keep the tone conversational.
Avoid acronyms, unless they are very well known such as ABC, HBF, CNN etc.
Keep an eye on length. Less can often be more!
Foremost, consider your audience - who is reading this and what do they need to know?
