chemical analyst

Dear sir/madam

I am currently an undergraduate at the ---------- studying Chemistry BSc. I read of your opening for a Analytical Chemistry Placement Student and I am very interested in the possibilities it offers. I am writing to explore the opportunity for employment with .

I am keen to be in an environment which is focused on industrial goals

Through lab sessions I have had the opportunity to explore many analytical techniques such as HPLC and GC

Through my previous work experience I have gained excellent communication skills and all my work experience has involved working within a team-based culture. Whilst being at university I have really learnt to organize my time effectively and I always meet deadlines. I enjoy working independently as well as part of a team and I always volunteer to act as a team leader when the opportunity arises in practical lab sessions.

Through my degree course I have been able to further develop my interest in Chemistry as well as improving my numeracy and laboratory skills. I achieved 69.3% in my first year and believe that I am on track for a 2:1.

I would be most grateful if you could consider me for any suitable positions within your company. I am available for interview at any time and look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Yours Sincerely
