Dear Selection Committee Members,
I am writing in response to the advertisement as regard vacancy for Doctoral Grant for the project of on sparse tensor approximation methods for high-dimensional transport
problems at Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Applied Computation. I respectfully submit this letter of application, for I believe my experiences are well qualified to meet the needs of the project.
I graduated from Master in Computation program at Tegal Alur University in Jakarta, Indonesia at 2006. I am currently a student at Master of Science in Complex Computation programme in the same university and fully expect to complete my degree by December 2007.
I work at Institute of Computation. Five years experience as a lecturer for Institute of Computation keens my experience in the application of computation in many fields. I also conducted project supervision for my student in those research areas. I achieved teaching experience also as a visiting lecturer in some universities in Jakarta. Besides my main responsibility, I also accomplished some research independently or in a team mainly in complex computation. These practices give me skill in the application of complex computation.
My studies in Computation and Complex Computation programme in Tegal Alur University not only provide me strong background and research experience in computation but also in its application in many fields. Several projects and course provide me broad view of computation problem in various fields. I also have gained valuable experience in solving real problem
I believe with these educational values that I possess, pursuing a PhD will add more to it and expose me more to areas where Computer science knowledge are relevant and in addition, put into practice what I have learnt so far. I have enclosed the application form, my CV, certificate and transcript. I look forward to hear from you soon. Thank you very much for your consideration.
