I am pleased to attach my résumé for consideration for the post of Lecturer II (Pharmaceutical Microbiology) in your institution. I am confident that my academic background and vast skills make me the ideal candidate for this role.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Microbiology (Pharmaceutical Microbiology) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology. Both degrees have accorded me professional mastery of Microbiology. I am proficient in public speaking and adept at sharing knowledge with varying audiences. I have demonstrated this through research papers and seminars that I presented at work places and in the course of my degrees. Furthermore, I am exceptionally skilled at employing computer packages as teaching aids, with attendant testimonials from past supervisors and students alike affirming my ability to bring ease of understanding to the most difficult of subjects.

My previous engagement as Research Assistant in the Nigerian Institute for Trypanosomiasis Research (NITR) in addition to rigorous course loads both at graduate and postgraduate studies, have enhanced my writing and research skills. I have also garnered teaching strength, especially in genetics, industrial microbiology and pharmaceutical microbiology. Additionally, I am inclined to active involvement in all aspects of academia: design of appropriate teaching and assessment methodologies, development of individual teaching materials as well as motivating students to attain their full academic potentials. Furthermore, I spent nearly six years working in public sphere, including marketing and customer service positions. These experiences afforded me the opportunity of developing administrative and organizational skills in addition to excellent communication and people-management skills.

I am desirous of utilizing these skills and experiences to advance the cause of your institution. The accompanying résumé can serve to provide you with greater details of my background but I welcome an opportunity to discuss in person, on the many ways in which I can bring value to this role.

Thank you in advance for your kind consideration.
