Dear Ms. Sawyer,
I am writing to express my interest in the open data analyst position with the Lovett Research Group. As you can see from my enclosed resume, I am a highly qualified candidate with a strong educational and statistical training background. I am extremely familiar in a variety of different research fields, can break down data extremely effectively, and possess the communication skills needed to convey complex information in simple terms.
My educational experience came from the Worchester Polytechnic Institute, where I received a bachelor’s degree in statistics. After a short time in the workforce as a research coordinator, I returned to school and received a master’s degree in statistics from Boston University. Ever since receiving my graduate degree, I have provided statistical analysis in a variety of positions through multiple educational institutions and private research groups. The strong reputation of the Lovett Research Group and the diverse nature of your work makes this position extremely desirable, and my ability to provide complex analysis and explain it to individuals outside the professional sphere will be very valuable.
My resume is enclosed, and I will happily provide any references you may wish upon request. Hopefully, we will get an opportunity to speak about this position in more detail soon. In the meantime, please contact me at (617) 523-9511 or via email at [email] with any questions. Thank you for your time, and I hope to speak with you again very soon.
