Cover / Motivation Letter : Why I am the right candidate

  1. Deep environmental engagement <- your main drive & professional experience (radioactive stuff in Japan, litter detective, oil mapping in the gulf of Mexico) << actually this is very important so you could start with #3 🙂
  2. Unique profile & project at the intersection of art, technology and design (give specific examples of projects you did at this intersection and what happened at this intersection)
  3. 10 years + experience with ocean robotics, in many different cultural and environmental/natural contexts (Protei Rotterdam, Hong Kong, etc)
  4. very nice to add videos 🙂 to the cover letter → Link to the coral Reef Mapping Robot
