Dear Mr. Birnbaum:
Please accept this as a letter of application for the Research Associate position advertised in the June 10th edition of the Denver Post. I recently graduated from Colorado College where I majored in biology. In addition to my education, I have experience working as a research assistant and data processor.
As a research assistant for the Colorado College Biology Department, I developed many of the laboratory skills required for this position. While earning my degree I participated in an environmental research study investigating the effects of pigmy lizards on Costa Rican rain forests. During summer breaks, I worked in a retail department store entering daily sales figures and assisting the manager with customer complaints
I am interested in working for Biology Research of America because of its strong reputation as a research company. I hope to contribute to your rising reputation and one day command my own research through your institution.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration. If I can provide you with any additional information, please feel free to contact me at (719) 555-2345. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
