I'll be sending this over the weekend to some Scottish Universities, in particular the ones who do not have a Human Resources department. So, could anybody tell me if that sounds right? And how can I put it better?
Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is Damien Gaucher. I am French and I am currently finishing up my studies in applied linguistics at the University of Rennes 2, France.
I wish to submit an application for next University year (2007 / 2008), for the position of teaching assistant in the French department.
Could you please give me the name and address of the most appropriate department to send in my application to?
If this department has specific requirements concerning the CV format (photograph, age, sex or nationality), would you be so kind as to indicate them to me?
Thank you in advance for your help.
I'll take it as granted you find this message perfect!!
