Academic Résumé versus Curriculum Vitae

What is the difference?

And why is a faculty posting asking for the résumé instead of the CV? What are they looking for that’s different?

I made myself depressed looking at an academic résumé online. The professor (whose work I knew) has twelve pages of single spaced publications.

Update: When I found anyone talking about it at all, the presentation indicated that a résumé was 1.5-2 pages and the CV was as many as you could fill up.

So I threw out stuff wholesale and got to a 2-page résumé. Hopefully they will be interested enough to contact me.
