1. A cover letter summarizing your qualifications and experience and how they match the requirements of one or more of the research labs. The cover letter helps us to understand how your qualifications and experience could contribute to UNU-CS and it gives us an indication of your real interest in the position. When possible, please explicitly identify the UNU-CS research lab and/or research projects that you most identify with. Please state clearly in your cover letter the position you are applying to. Just dashing us a copy of your CV will not work!
