Your excellent academic record underlines your ability to think analytically and at the same time across disciplines, both on an abstract and an applied level. You are also interested in other sustainability topics such as climate change or the energy transition and in current political and societal discussions in the field. Your working style is team-oriented and you have strong communication skills. You are fluent in English; German is an additional asset, but not necessary.
