I don't understand using vocabulary in academic writing. In academic writing, what should we use style? (Formal-neutral-informal). Please give me examples. Thanks!

In academic writing, you use formal vocabulary and style. This is not a hard-and-fast rule, but too much informal style and vocabulary makes you sound less serious about the subject.
Compare: "I gained employment" to "I got a job".
