Dear Masters,

Can you please review my motivation letter for CERN ? Please feel free to cut lines of paragraphs that you might think that don't apply.

Best regards,

José Pedro Cardoso

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to express my great interest in applying for the ACEOLE Programme(or program ?) at CERN, which I truly believe will be the key for my goals in life: investigation and lecturing.

After having done a Bsc and a Msc in Engineering, it is the time to start with the PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering (FEUP). This is a unique opportunity to work as an investigator, in the most prestigious particle physics laboratory in the world and, at the same time, take the PhD at FEUP (CERN’s Partner on “ASIC building blocks for detector readout systems” project.)

I studied Electronics and Telecomunications engineering, from 1999-2000, at the , where I obtained a five year bachelor's degree. The course focused on electronics, telecommunications and computer science. As I have always had an enormous passion for electronics. The fifth year (specialization) was dedicated to microelectronics. During this year I designed an IC (1 GHz Oscillator) using CMOS 0.6 um technology.

After graduation I have been invited to work as an investigator for the Telecommunications Institute, in order to design a charge pre-amplifier, in CMOS 0.6 um technology, for a Particle Detector belonging to the Physics Department. By that time I had almost two years of Analog IC Design experience with Cadence tools.

From 2001 to 2007, I went to to work as a Telecom Engineer. It wasn’t and IC Design role, but by that time, this function wasn’t very popular in .

Meanwhile I have decided to go back to University to do a Master’s Degree. During 2006 I finished the Master’s Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, at Universidade Técnica de Lisboa (IST).

In the following year the work “” was awarded first prize on the contest “

Nowadays I am working for Company_xxx as a IC Test Engineer, where I am the responsible for 110DDR nm and 90 DDR2 nm.

Given my career, awards and especially will to continue my studies (PhD), I have decided that is time to return to IC Design, in order to accomplish my dreams: being an investigator and a lecturer in microelectronics area.

I found CERN programme quiet appealing, because of the institution itself, the role involved, the possibility of doing the PhD in cooperation with CERN, working together with scientists and engineers, continuous seek for improvement, that would challenge me every day.

I would be grateful for your consideration of my candidacy for this program.

Sincerely Yours,

José Pedro Cardoso
José:
This is my second try - something went wrong when I posted the last time.

Your letter is very good - I have made some suggestions for improvement.

I studied Electronics and Telecomunications engineering, from 1999-2000, at the University of Aveiro, where I obtained a five-year bachelor's degree. The course focused on electronics, telecommunications and computer science. As I have always had an enormous passion for electronics, so devoted my. The fifth year (specialization) was dedicated to microelectronics. During this year I designed an IC (1 GHz Oscillator) using CMOS 0.6 um technology.



After graduation, I have beenwas invited to work as an investigator for the Telecommunications Institute, where I worked on ain order to the design of a charge pre-amplifier, in CMOS 0.6 um technology, for a particle detector belonging to the Physics Department. By that time (it's not clear what time you mean here - when you left TI, or when you finished the pre-amplifier) I had almost two years of Analog IC Design experience with Cadence tools.



From 2001 to 2007, I went to Lisbon to worked as a Telecom Engineer in Lisbon.. It wasn’t and IC Design role, because but by that time, there were not many opportunities for IC designers this function wasn’t very popular in Portugal.

I found the CERN programme quite quiet appealing, because of the institution itself, the role involved, the possibility of doing the PhD in cooperation with CERN, working together with top scientists and engineers who , continuous seek for improvement, that would challenge me every day.



I would be grateful for your consideration of my candidacy for this program.

Hi,

I have no words. Thank you very much for this fantastic job that you did on my letter, I honestly think that now the letter is perfect. I will take, of course, all your suggestions. And I have to thank you all your patience to read, correct and submit all of this. Great work from your side.

Thank you very much for all.

Best regards,

José Pedro Cardoso
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi José Pedro Cardoso

I am in my fourth year of b-tech, in electronics and communications engineering stream. I am from India.
I am really interested in knowing whether you've got into Cern. Its a dream place for me!

Regards,
Anusha

hi José Pedro Cardoso!

i need a little help from you.
