Sample cover letter for Full Time position at OBR




Dear XXX,

I am writing to apply for the Consulting Project Manager position advertised in the XXX website.

I am a researcher at XX. My academic work is focused on applying a systems biology approach to cancer research. As you will see on my CV, during my work experiences I have acquired strong quantitative and analytical skills and demonstrated ability to work independently as well as a successful member of several multi-disciplinary teams. As a computational biologist, I have developed a strong ability to manage multiple projects, to deliver results on time, and to lead research projects from conception to completion/publication.I believe that I can apply the same skills to the Consulting position offered within XXX.

I have a great enthusiasm for the position offered. During the past years I have grown an appreciation of many of the activities downstream of research such as technology development, business management and marketing and have become interested in expanding my understanding of strategic issues in the biotech industry. I feel that this position is the challenge and opportunity that I am looking for and that it would definitely play an integral role in my personal growth.

I look forward to speaking with you soon and hope you will consider my application favourably.

Thank you for your consideration,
