Application for the position of Research Intern

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing this cover letter to express my deep interest in applying for the Research Intern position within Imperial College London which has been posted and promoted on your institution careers website. I believe that I possess everything necessary to execute the role and all associated duties successfully. What is more, I am certain that it would be a great opportunity for me to grow both personally and professionally.

My name is Oliver Gaumann and I am a master's Genetics student at the Stanford University, where I am among the top 2% of students with the best academic results. Furthermore, I am involved in multiple extracurricular activities, including Psychology Society and TEDx Club and I serve as a Class Representative. My studies have allowed me to become a great team player and helped me to develop the ability to think critically and solve complex problems.

On top of my education, I worked as a Research Assistant at the UCSF Institute for Human Genetics for 3 months. There, I was given the responsibility for developing and implementing new data collection and analysis processes, performing various lab operations, and assisting in multiple experiments. In addition, I updated relevant files and records, resolved any problematic issues, and executed other tasks as required. Next, I am a pro-active individual offering exceptional knowledge of biology and determination to achieve extraordinary results. I am a Certified Lab Technician and a native Dutch speaker with a proficiency in English and a basic knowledge of German. Last but not least, I have attached my up-to-date CV for your review so please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any additional information on my qualifications or qualities. I can be reached at any time at 555-555-5555 or via email at hello@kickresume.com. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

Sincerely,

Oliver Gaumann
