Dear Dr. Professor (Last Name),

I have read your advertisement for a Research Assistant posted in the Bulletin Board of the Institute for Biological Sciences. Being a graduate of this university with several courses under your mentorship, I have greatly admired your research works, among them “Molecular Biology: The Wonder of the New World.” I have longed to be a part of your successful team of researchers and so I am taking this opportunity to apply and be considered.

After completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with major in Molecular Biology I pursue a career in research at a pharmaceutical firm that has extensive research project on the cure of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) for more than two (2) years.

My desire to expand my knowledge on the field of my interest prompted me to pursue my Master’s Degree in Molecular Biology effective September 2012. I believe that becoming your research assistant will give me wider opportunity to excel in my post graduate education and at the same time share new ideas in your research projects.

I am looking forward to discuss further this position with you at your most convenient time and date. Enclosed is my resume and transcript of records for your perusal. I may be reached through phone 555-555-5555 or email address name@internet.com.


(Your Name)
