Application for the role of Laboratory Technician (job reference if applicable)
I would be very interested to apply for the role of Laboratory Technician which I have seen advertised (where) and (when).
I did biology and chemist and chemistry at A Level and I have always had a keen interest in Science and having researched the role of a Lab Technician and done some work experience in a Lab I feel that this is the right career choice for me.
I am very interested in continuing my learning and I would like to do a degree and become a qualified lab technician. I have a good understanding of health and safety and the environment of a Lab and how clean and sterile it needs to be to be able to investigate anything new.
I feel that the role of a lab technician would be a very interesting and challenging role and it would be very exciting to be part of finding a new cure, looking at diseases etc and I feel that my keen interest will help me to flourish in this role.
I have enclosed my CV for you to see my skills and experience in detail. If you would be interested in discussing this further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
