I am currently a sophomore with junior standing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison going for my biology major for pre-med. I am very interested in your laboratory assistant position at the UW Health building for research work with mice in the genetics field. I believe I would be a good prospect for this position because I strongly dedicate myself to all I set my mind to, and am always willing to learn and accept constructive criticism. I also have background in general biology, chemistry, and genetics concepts. I am capable of working alongside others or on my own, with the ability to either take instruction or apply leadership skills when necessary. By working in your laboratory, I would be allowed to develop my research abilities and further expand my knowledge of the field in which I am so passionate, while giving forth my best honest effort to the job at hand.
