Dear Sir or Madam:
I am searching for a summer internship for 2014. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Missouri, Columbia majoring in Biochemistry, Mathematics, and a minor in Physics. I believe that my academic record and laboratory background are a nice fit for the type of research that is being done at the Hope Center. I am a hard worker with a curious mind that drives me to excel in both the classroom and the laboratory. My long term goal is to obtain an MD/PhD in brain research. I know that Hope Center is engaged in world class research on a daily basis and I would love to be part of it for the summer of 2014. I look forward to being considered for any opportunity, thank you.

As an aspiring pre-medical student, I believe that an integral part ofstudying medicine is understanding the research process that defines theway we understand the human body. Over the past year and a half, I havehad the unique opportunity to volunteer in several labs and learn aboutthe scientific process. My work in the Cardiothoracic Research Lab atWashington University and Dr. Liu’s Vascular Surgery Lab at theUniversity of Wisconsin-Madison has given me great insight into thescientific method and has taught me many invaluable research skills. Thededication shown by the physicians and researchers that I’ve becomeacquainted with through my time spent in these labs has inspired me tocontinue my pursuit to be a physician and to try to make an impactthrough research.
While I have certainly learned a lot by working in cardiac and vascularsurgery research labs, I am also very interested in neurologicalresearch. As a kid, I was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, and myknowledge and first-hand experience of neurological disorders has sparkedmy interest in neurological research. I have seen the benefits of modernneurological treatments first-hand, and contribute my academic andpersonal success to the dedicated physicians who helped me overcome myillness. Furthermore, my appreciation has driven me to participate inseveral studies on Tourette Syndrome performed at Washington University.I plan on returning home to St. Louis this summer and would like thechance to see the other side of this research by learning about andhelping with the exciting neurological research taking place there.
Research Position in Functional Imaging of Neurodegenerative Diseases
Description: Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position within the Departments of Neurology and Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis. Research focuses on the application of functional MRI methods to neurodegenerative diseases (including Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and HIV Associated Dementia (HAD)). This research investigates the use of functional neuroimaging measures (including arterial spin labeling (ASL) and resting state blood oxygen dependent (BOLD) imaging) as biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases. Opportunities will be provided for pursuing personal research interests if applicable. Writing manuscripts and applying for independent grants will be strongly encouraged.
Requirements: The qualified candidate should have a degree in neurosciences, psychology, biomedical engineering, physics, computer science, or other related fields. Previous experience with some of the following computational methods (e.g., linear algebra, time-series analysis, image analysis), programming (e.g., C/C++, MATLAB, R, Python) and neuroimaging programs (e.g. SPM, AFNI, Freesurfer) is preferred and would allow for more individualized studies. Strong facility with statistical analyses is also desired.
To apply, please send a letter of interest and CV to email@example.com. Please arrange for three confidential letters of reference to be sent to the address below. Only applicants considered for employment will be contacted.

I am looking for postdoc or staff scientist position. I received my PhD in Neuroscience and my dissertation topic was”Ionotropic glutamate receptor expression during embryonic stem cell differentiation”. During my PhD work, I established mouse embryonic stem cell culture and differentiation technique in Prof. Hollmann’s laboratory in Germany. As an outcome of my PhD work I have a paper published on 3rd December 2013 in Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience with impact factor 4.5. I am equal author to the paper. Here is the link to the paper for your view.
I have keen interest to work in the area of neurodegenerative diseases and CNS autoimmunity. I am permanent resident of US and so do not need any Visa and can work for any employer I am currently working as part time volunteer in Dr. Fleming’s Lab, DRC at Saint Louis University and looking for postdoc positions. I am well versed with molecular, cellular, biochemical and immunological techniques. I have teaching experience as I worked as Lecturer and taught B. Tech course(Engineering in Biotechnology) in Delhi Technological University, India.
Further information could be found in my resume, which is attached to this mail. My resume includes the list of references.
Thanks for your time and consideration

In May 2007 I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and I would like to use the scientific knowledge, skills and experience that I have gained to contribute to Washington University.
Through the end of last year I worked as a biologist for Saltwater Inc., an industry leader in the design and implementation of fishery and marine mammal observer programs, where I collected fisheries data for a variety of public, private, and foundation clients. My experience in the field has strengthened an assortment of skills necessary to be successful in a research/lab setting. The amount and variety of data I collected on a daily basis demanded a high amount of organization, communication and the ability to perform a wide range of data entry in a flawless, timely manner. Working in an isolated environment has allowed me to develop the independence that is pertinent in working in a laboratory position. Establishing a sampling station and selecting sampling methods on a multitude of boat designs in a constantly changing environment has required me to be both flexible and adaptable. Please note that I have animal experience both in and outside of school and have had courses in Ruminant and Monogastric Nutrition, Production, and Physiology. I have the ability to observe, educate and direct activities effectively, and I am willing to accept all the responsibilities associated with a position with Washington University.
Washington University’s commitment to research, teaching and knowledge are compelling reasons to join your team and further its mission, if given the opportunity. My skills and experience would fit well with your company’s expectations in order to move forward towards a brighter future. I also believe that my work ethic and passion for science and research are values shared by your staff. Joining the Washington University team would be an excellent way to become a professional scientist and I would anticipate a long and productive career there.
I would like to discuss my background with you in person and have enclosed a resume for your review. You may reach me at RyanTroske@gmail.com or (314)435-5025. Thank you very much for your consideration.

Looking for Lab Technician Position

I recently graduated from Truman State University with my B.S. in Biology, and I am currently looking for a research technician position within the St. Louis area. I am hoping this position would be long term to fill my gap years before entering medical school. I have previously worked as a research technician within the Microbiology Department of A.T. Still University during the summer of 2011. I assisted Dr. Rachel Ruhlen, Ph.D. in studying the effect of OMT manipulation on the symptoms caused by carrageenan; and I assisted her in studying the effects of exercise on estrogen-induced breast cancer in laboratory rats. Furthermore, I have also assisted a faculty member of the Biochemistry Department at A.T. Still University for two semesters in studying the Cystatin protein pathway and its involvement in melanoma metastasis. Apart from my past research positions, my science-heavy course load at Truman has given me practice developing and conducting PCR, western blot, and creating cell cultures. I have a very strong understanding of protein purification methods, enzymatic kinetics, protease and gene regulatory mechanisms.
I am willing to volunteer in a lab if I am unable to receive a technician position. I am eager for any opportunity to gain more hands-on laboratory experience.
Thank you for your time!
