Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name,

Please accept my resume for the Research Technician position posted on MonsterTrak. My background and skills in lab techniques will prove to be an effective match for your qualifications.

I have a BS in Chemistry, and a 3.8 GPA. I have taken several lab courses in Biochemistry, where I worked with chromatography, ELISA, and southern and western blotting techniques.

While working for ABC Environmental Laboratory, I successfully applied my research skills, and maintained the laboratory. I participated in planning experiments as well as evaluating test results. I monitored equipment performance and maintenance schedules. In addition, I was responsible for maintaining biohazard and radiation safety standards, and ensuring proper handling of potentially hazardous chemical and biological agents.

In addition to the lab work, I recorded, calculated, and analyzed data, and prepared reports. I worked closely with a team of researchers and learned the value of good lab practice. I work well as a team member, am very reliable and organized, and willing to learn.

Thank you for your consideration.
