# Aligning parbox vertically in .cls file

I'm using this https://www.sharelatex.com/templates/cv-or-resume/fancy-cv template to write my cv. I have faced a very tiny problem in formatting and was hoping to get some hints from folks here.

The Problem:

As you can see,"since 2009 month" became 2 row but instead of aligning with Ph.D. canididate in Computer Science, it decided to insert an extra line above it.

I would like this to change so that "since 2009" aligns with "Ph.D. candidate" line

Code:

Here is the cv.tex section responsible for the area:

\section{education}

\begin{entrylist}
\entry
{since 2009\\ month}
{Ph.D. {\normalfont candidate in Computer Science}}
{DNET/INRIA, LIP/ÉNS de Lyon}
{\emph{A Quantified Theory of Social Cohesion.}}
...
\end{entrylist}


And here is the friggeri-cv.cls section:

\setlength{\tabcolsep}{0pt}
\newenvironment{entrylist}{%
\begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}ll}
}{%
\end{tabular*}
}
\newcommand{\entry}[4]{%
#1&\parbox[t]{11.8cm}{%
\textbf{#2}%
\hfill%
#4\vspace{\parsep}%
}\\}


My Attempt:

\setlength{\tabcolsep}{0pt}
\newenvironment{entrylist}{%
\begin{tabular*}{\textwidth}{@{\extracolsep{\fill}}ll}
}{%
\end{tabular*}
}
\newcommand{\entry}[5]{%
#1&\parbox[t]{11.8cm}
#5&\parbox[t]{11.8cm}{%
\textbf{#2}%
\hfill%
#4\vspace{\parsep}%
}\\}


\begin{entrylist}
\entry
{since 2009}
{Ph.D. {\normalfont candidate in Computer Science}}
{DNET/INRIA, LIP/ÉNS de Lyon}
{\emph{A Quantified Theory of Social Cohesion.}}
{month}


• Welcome to TeX.SE! Your code snippet are interesting, however it require additional effort from people, who can help you, that from them make a short document, which will show your problem. Please, help them and prepare Minimal Working Example! – Zarko May 15 '16 at 23:51
• ^^ This. We need a complete small example which produces the output you show. Guessing: try \parbox[t]{3cm}{since 2009\\ month} with the original definition. 3cm is probably wrong, but whatever you figure it should be. – cfr May 16 '16 at 1:01
• Do not change the class file! – Johannes_B May 16 '16 at 7:11

Use a \parbox for #1 too. Add the following in the preamble.
\renewcommand{\entry}[4]{%

Adjust 0.18\linewidth and 0.82\linewidth as you wish.
