Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Stryker Endoscopy


Research Associate

Dear _____:

It is with great interest that I am forwarding my resume to you for the full-time research position at Stryker Endoscopy in California, especially after speaking with you on Wednesday at the Johns Hopkins University Career Fair. As I complete my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, I hope to contribute my skills and experience to Stryker. This is an opportunity where I can fully apply my education, professional experiences, and personal interests.

My varied coursework has expanded my knowledge of mechanical and biological systems and enriched my skill sets in analyzing data and communicating that information. The most significant of these was the Biomedical Engineering Design Team course. Through this course, I have gained invaluable product development experience, from conception and designing to prototyping and testing. My design team and I developed a vestibular ocular reflex diagnostic device that can quantify degeneration in the vestibular ocular reflex that can lead to vertigo and sudden dizziness.

For the design, I contributed to the safety analysis of the the device by proving that the degree to which the patient’s head was being rotated was significantly below thresholds for injury and pain.

In addition, I lead my team in doing market research and developing a business plan that would bring the device to market. We attended conferences and workshops across the nation to learn more about medical device development and even competed in several business competitions. By the end of my sophomore year, the prototype of the diagnostic device was sold to a company in Japan, with hopes of becoming the new golden standard for dizziness and vertigo testing.

In addition to my academic work, my professional experiences have significantly influenced my desire to work in the medical device industry, specifically at Stryker. During my time as an intern at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, I used numerous medical devices and saw the immense impact they had on patients. My interest in medicine and engineering led to doctors and nurses explaining how the various devices worked and were utilized in different situations.

I am confident I will be a valuable asset to Stryker Endoscopy, bringing a unique combination of skills, professional and personal experiences, and passionate dedication. I look forward to hearing from you and having the opportunity to further discuss my qualifications. Thank you for your time and consideration.
