Looking for work?

Montreal, March 18 2001

Human Resources

Madam, Sir,

Currently, I am studying in the engineering physics and engineering materials department at École Polytechnique de Montréal. I wish to submit my candidature for the post of Process Engineer.

I have a very good knowledge of the science of materials, in particular in semiconductors (thermoelectric alloys) and the dielectric materials (ceramics oxides and polymers). I also have a very good knowledge in electrical, mechanical, thermal characterization of materials, design new materials and materials process.

My various work experience in industry and academia have enabled me to develop my skills to work with groups and to manage my time effectively. I feel that my background and my sense of the responsibilities would enable me make a contribution in your compagny.

I am looking forward to meet you in interview and to transmit all other information that you may request.

Sincerely yours

Sami Abdelkhalek

Re Looking to hire? Looking for work?

Please try to keep your postings somehow related to thermoelectricity. Something related to energy conversion, sensors, detectors and/or the industry, technology or research thereof.

Re Looking to hire? Looking for work?

With my Bachelors in Chemical Engineering and the deep interest in the thermoelectric field, I desire to pursue a career in renewable energy technologies, where they specilaize in projects to install and service management solutions for alternative energies, in particular with biogas, bioethanol, landfill gasification, and biodigestors.

Although I currently live in Philadelphia, I am willing to relocate and travel. Please email me for my resume, which I happily like to send to the proper person at the company.

Regards, Daniel Colllins

Re Looking for work

I am looking for employment in the field of thermoelectrics. My thesis concerned the study of doping and processing effects on high-temperature oxide thermoelectric materials. I have just submitted a paper that displays some of this work to a peer review journal, and therefore cannot attach it to this message. However from the attached resume, I think you will get a sense of the scope of my skills and a brief introduction to my experience. If you are interested in hearing more, please contact me by e-mail at; japama@u.washington.edu.
Thank you, Jerome Moyer
