Dear Dr. Benner:
I am applying for the position of Research Assistant (position #
E3467) which was advertised November 1 with the Loyola University New
Orleans Counseling & Career Services Center. The position seems to fit
well with my education, experience, and career interests.
Your position requires familiarity with experiment design, data
collection, and statistical analysis. With a major in biology, I have
training in a variety of experimental modeling techniques and have
gathered experience with many types of lab equipment. My practical
experience on the research team of Dr. Gerber gave me valuable
exposure to data collection and statistical analysis methods.
Additionally, I have worked as a statistics tutor for the past two
years. The enclosed resume further details my qualifications.
My knowledge and experience coupled with an interest in biological
research closely match your requirements. I am confident that I can be
an effective member of your research team. Furthermore, I am
interested in your current work and believe that it has great
significance to the field of biology. It would be an honor to work
with you and your team.
I would like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss this
opportunity and my qualifications further. I shall call you next week
to see if a meeting can be arranged. Should you need to reach me,
please feel free to call me at 555-5555.
Thank you again for your consideration. I look forward to talking with
