Sample Natural Sciences Managers Cover Letter

In this NATURAL SCIENCES MANAGER COVER LETTER the candidate is able to express not only his job attributes but also his general philosophy of science to the Hiring Manager. Generally speaking this is a bold move. Most Natural Science Manager cover letters would keep their topic concerned with their specific job duties. However, often the secret to getting the interview is standing out in the cover letter and this letter does that very well.

A Natural Science Manager should bring several key attributes to the laboratory every day. First, he or she should bring a respect for science, and the time-proven rigors of scientific method that regulate how science is done. Second, he or she should bring an open mind and a willingness to break with traditional thinking in a second.

On first glance, it might appear that those are contradictory characteristics. That someone who adheres to traditional and tested methods is hardly the type of person to throw away his or her cherished ideas. And itís true that for many Natural Science Managers, there is a tendency to lean one way or the other. But as for myself, itís that dichotomy which makes science so exciting, and my job as a Natural Science Manager so interesting.

In my career to date, I have tried very consistently to hold myself to the highest standards of my profession, and to follow the most consistent and proven laboratory procedures at all times. At the same time, Iím acutely aware that some of the greatest scientific breakthroughs have been the result of accidents, or even more frequently, the willingness of some scientist to follow the evidence of experiments even when they contradict conventional wisdom.

As my resume shows, Iíve worked in some of the most prestigious labs in science and have had my share of promotions and accolades for my work. Whatís more important though, is the effect that I believe Iíve had on others, by helping to instill or preserve an enthusiasm for the potential of applied science to make the world a better place. I look forward to hearing from you how I could put this experience to work in your lab.

Thank you,
