Sample cover letter for Full Time position at A*star


Research Engineer

Dear Sir/Mdm

I am writing to apply for the Research Engineer position in the Mechanical Metrology cluster, which I learned of through the Astar website. I believe I am a strong candidate for this position as I have the qualifications and experience you are seeking. My resume is enclosed for your review.

I’m a recent Ph.D. graduate in Environmental Engineering from the National University of Singapore (NUS). My education at NUS has prepared me with not only strong background on the environmental technology, methodology, policy and strategy; I’ve also acquired strong analytic and problem solving skills. Through my coursework, projects and research, I have developed strong engineering and mathematical skills, including using analytic instruments and modelling tools, to solve problem.

I believe my qualifications, experience, and enthusiasm make me a qualified and valuable candidate for the position. I have enclosed my resume. If you need further discussion on my qualifications, I can be contacted by email or by phone.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.
