Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I am writing to you today to express my interest in your open position of Research Associate. I offer five years of experience in Microbiology research and laboratory work, including contributions to assay detection and sample development for companies such as Company A and Company B.
Over the course of my tenure at these two companies, I have made positive contributions beyond my scientific work by streamlining processes and overcoming obstacles that would negatively impact study progress or product deliverables. I am also highly skilled in driving compliance to Good Laboratory Practices and Good Manufacturing Practices as well as OSHA and FDA requirements.
While at Company A, I devised new procedures for cell culturing that allowed us to deliver samples six weeks ahead of schedule. This saved the company money and expedited the overall study. The client was very satisfied with these results. At Company B, I raised compliance and safety standards by organizing frozen and raw materials in such a way to protect supplies and minimize waste.
Confident I will prove valuable to your operation, I respectfully submit my resume for your review. I would also like to request a personal meeting to discuss your upcoming goals and how I can help you achieve them. I will make myself available at your convenience and look forward to your call. Thank you for your consideration.
