    Grammar

    Hi, my name is Azim, could you possibly explain the right way of providing academic degrees? So which is recommendable:
    Ken Showet, PhD
    or
    Ken Showet, Candidate of Historical Sciences

    PhD and Can.of His.Scien. are the same in sense, but sometimes I am required to clarify the sphere (Hsistory, Mathematics, Econpmy etc.). What shall I do?

    Welcome to the forums.

    Could you give a bit more information - where do you need to use these?

    Re: Grammar

    Dear teacher,
    This especially required while filling in an application forms, writing CVs or just providing information about a persons background. I need more calirifications on this matter. I am invariably in two minds whether to write just PhD proceded by a name or provide, say, Candidate of Mathematics

    Salim Kurbanov, PhD, Senior lecturer, Colombia University
    or
    Salim Kurbanov, Candidate of Mathematics, Senior lecturer, Colombia University

    Thank you in advance, looking forward to your soon reply.
    Kind regards,
    Azim

    Re: Grammar

    If for a job application, and you lecture in the area of your Ph.D, then this would be suitable:

    Salim Kurbanov, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics, Colombia University, New York, NY.

    If your title is, say Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics, or some specific area of mathematics, then write that.

    On a CV, there is a section on Higher Education, or Qualifications. There, you would state that you have a Ph.D., the university where this was obtained, and the year, and give the title of your doctoral thesis.
