Application for Postdoctoral Researcher

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a Doctorate of Environmental Sciences graduate with a strong interest in climate change crises, I apply with enthusiasm for this postdoctoral researcher opportunity.

I am currently a part-time Research Coordinator at the University of Sunnybank’s Office of Biotechnology and Environment, where my focus is on research that drives environmental and social change. I am also an undergraduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Environmental Sciences, where in addition to instructional planning, I grade papers and tests, proctor labs, and hold the post of Microbiology and Bioremediation Instructor.

Specific research areas I have focused on include social and legal aspects of the environment and energy planning, particularly the complexity of the human-environment relationship. Furthermore, I assisted with the research and writing of "Chapter 2: Energy Planning" in Erick Miska’s (2017) Environmental and Social Change in the 21st Century (Persimmon Press). In addition, I completed fieldwork and conducted interviews with environmental scientists and microbiology experts across Europe for the University of Sunnybank’s Environmental Heritage Report. 

In addition to 6 years of research and teaching experience and my recent doctorate, I hold a Master of Biotechnology and a Bachelor of Environment and Society. I have also attended professional workshops and courses in environmental ethics philosophy.

I have enjoyed my time at the University of Sunnybank, and am grateful for the excellent research and teaching opportunities offered. I am now seeking a full-time research role that will enable me to more intensively explore climate change crises with a team of experts.

Please find attached my curriculum vitae for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours faithfully,

Angela Ellis
