Dear Dr. Walsh:

My experience as a research biologist for five years at Stanley University in marine studies has prepared me for the position you listed on JobBankUSA.com for a biologist in your marine department. This is an area of great interest to me and other biologists I've associated with in recent months. I believe I could bring a new perspective to this department with some of the research I've already conducted.

May we meet in person to discuss your goals and duties planned for the person you hire? Please phone me at 777-777-7777 so we can arrange a date and time that suits your schedule. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, as well. I appreciate your considering my cover letter and resume.
