I spent 10+ years in industry before going back to grad school to pursue a PhD, and therefore I have extensive industry experience, as well as ongoing academic work. Is there a good way to represent this on my CV? Does anyone know a good CV format or template that would allow me to show this?

I would say there are a couple ways to attack this. You could list academic experience as a separate section to industry experience, this would show that you consider them very separate.

You could also make a section titled " (Relevant) Experience" and list everything you have in chronological order. This would give the impression to whoever is reading it that you consider all of your experience relevant in the position that you are applying to.

In either case, make sure you highlight the relevant portions of your background to the position you are applying.
