RE: Project Officer
Dear Dr. XX:
I would like to apply for the above position as I believe my work experience and educational background meet the job requirements. I graduated from the University of XXX with a Bachelor of Arts degree and I got my Master of Arts degree in Social Science from the University of XXX. I am now working as a senior research assistant at the Institute of ABC.
Having worked as a research assistant for nearly three years, I have gained significant experience in research. I am able to analyze a large scale survey data set. I also have solid experience in conducting individual and focus group interview, and coding and analyzing qualitative data such as transcripts and school reports. I am also familiar with social research computer applications such as SPSS and NVivo. Besides, I got the chance to write research report and present it in public seminars.
Since I have worked at the institute for nearly three years, I am familiar with its organization and administrative procedures. For example, I know how to hire student helper and part-time research assistant, how to book venues and equipments for seminar and conference, and where and whom to seek help from when I encounter administrative matters. Through conducting the research projects, I have also gained valuable experience in liaising with external parties such as schools, non-governmental organizations and government departments.
Moreover, I am self-motivated and able to work independently. In most of the time, I work with minimal supervision. But I am also able to work as a good team player, which is demonstrated through my active participation in student society and alumni association.
Attached is my resume and I would be very pleased to have opportunity to interview with you and I hope you will give my candidacy favorable consideration. Thank you.
Thank you very much, Gil!!
