Subject Line: Summer Research Assistant - Your Name

Email Message:

Dear Ms. LastName,

I am interested in applying for the research assistant summer position that was listed on Monster.

I have laboratory experience in biology, chemistry, and geology, both in the field and in a research setting. In the lab, I have performed chemical reactions and I am currently using microscopes to observe many specimens. In environmental field studies, I have conducted outdoor labs to assess water chemistry.

I believe that I would be an asset to your program. This position would provide me with the ideal opportunity to assist at your organization and to expand my research skills.

I hope to schedule an interview at a mutually convenient time. I look forward to speaking with you.

Thank you for your consideration.
