I have an extensive academic background in biological sciences combined with a strong practical work experience in basic research, especially in molecular and cellular biology fields.
My main research area has been so far the characterization of the tumour suppressor gene XXX, discovered in my lab some years ago. I studied several aspects of this tumour suppressor. My first research project demonstrated its role in *** carcinogenesis, where its decreased expression is associated with the inhibition of the YYY pathway. Then, I studied XXX transcriptional regulation. I demonstrated that XXX expression depends on KKK, especially during cellular neurodifferentiation.
During my PhD I also contributed to other projects, as the characterization of HHH role on embriogenesis, and the study of a novel JJJ splice variant, that became the topics of a publication in the Journal ___ and a poster presentation, respectively. Furthermore, I am the first author of a review published on the scientific journal __.
My research experience in different topics gave me a good flexibility of mind, and enabled me to learn and improve many techniques in molecular and cellular biology fields.

Dear Prof. ___

I am writing to inquire about the possibility of obtaining a post-doctoral position in your laboratory.

I am currently a Post Doc researcher at the University of Rome, Italy, Department of Experimental Medicine. I have an extensive academic background in biological sciences, combined with strong practical work experience in basic research, especially in the molecular and cellular biology fields.

My main research area so far has been the characterization of the tumor suppressor gene XXX, discovered in my lab some years ago. I have studied several aspects of this tumor suppressor. My first research project demonstrated its role in *** carcinogenesis, where its decreased expression is associated with the inhibition of the YYY pathway. I then studied XXX transcriptional regulation. I demonstrated that XXX expression depends on KKK, especially during cellular neuro-differentiation.

During my Ph.D. work I also contributed to other projects, including the characterization of HHH role on embriogenesis, and the study of a novel JJJ splice variant that became the topic of a publication in the Journal ___ and a poster presentation, respectively. I am also the first author of a review published in the scientific journal __.

My research experience in different topics has given me a good flexibility of mind and enabled me to learn and improve many techniques in the molecular and cellular biology fields. I am highly motivated, hardworking, results driven, and a good team player. In my career, I have developed good communication and organizational skills. I love scientific research, and this passion has always induced me to solve difficult challenges and to achieve my goals.

In my future career, I see a Post-Doc with your group as the ideal way to broaden my knowledge and scientific activity. Your research activities are really interesting, and research quality known for excellence. I greatly appreciated your work on the ___ gene, published in the Journal __.

I would be grateful if you would give me the opportunity to join your group. I believe that, with my scientific background, enthusiasm, curiosity, and determination, I could make a significant and valuable contribution to your research work.

I would welcome the opportunity to visit you in London to further discuss my qualifications.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I have attached my CV for your review and look forward to hearing from you.
