Resume Molecular Biology Cover Letter

Dear Dr. Benson

In response to JBL Biotechnology Labouratory’s need for a Molecular Biologist I am submitting my CV for your review and consideration. With a Master’s degree in Molecular and Cell Biology and a focus on protein biochemistry and transport I’m eligible to enter a doctoral program at Case Western Reserve University.

In my current position at the Cleveland Water Treatment Plant I conduct tests for toxins in the water supply and through my association with The Cleveland Water Alliance have promoted collabouration among business universities and research institutions to study freshwater technology. I’ve contributed to the Alliance through education outreach research and development and being able to present my findings to non-scientific audiences. Since protein biochemistry—which is a large part of JBL’s focus— was also my focus at Princeton I would relish the idea of being back in the lab unravelling the mystery of the biological aspects of life. I possess excellent analytical computer and organisational skills and complete tasks in a meticulous manner. I’m familiar with the use of complex equipment like liquid chromatographs phosphoimagers and electrophoresis units. I’m searching for an opportunity in biotechnology and you’re looking for an experienced Molecular Biologist. We should talk.

I look forward to your call at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Dr. Franklin:

I am writing to apply for the research assistant position advertised on Monster. I was intrigued when I read your report in International Journal of Oncology Science on the innovative use of nanoparticle-based therapeutics for cancer treatment, and would like to contribute to ongoing research in this specialty.

My background includes three years of professional research experience, including my current role as a graduate research assistant at DEF University’s Cancer Research Center and prior experience as a cellular biology research intern for XYZ Corp¾a world leader in cancer research and treatment.

At DEF University and XYZ Corp, I gained exposure to research in gene cloning and electrophoresis. I mastered various blotting techniques; performed complex, cell-based assays; and become skilled in the use of flow cytometry (FACS) technology to complete advanced cell sorting, cell counting and biomarker detection. In each role, I earned commendations for the quality of my research, including data collection, quantitative analysis and results interpretation.

My academic credentials include a BS in cellular and molecular biology and an in-progress MS degree in the same, which I expect to complete this summer. Technical skills include Python, R, MATLAB and Tableau.

Having lost family members to cancer, I share ABC Company’s mission to find a cure. I want to continue contributing to research efforts furthering this important cause, and would welcome the chance to join your team.

To schedule a meeting, please call me at (555) 555-5555 or email Thank you for your time.
