Mr. David Cornfield
Scientist Fellowship Program Director
Big Pharm Tech Company
899 Main St.
San Francisco, CA 94158


Dear Mr. Cornfield, 

As a driven researcher, educator, and change agent, I enthusiastically submit my candidacy for your Research Program Director opening. I have diverse experiences in scientific research as well as in program development that will help me recruit participants and develop clinical studies at Big Pharm Tech.

I started my career at a premier R1 research institution, where I honed my expertise in collaborative research, supervision, and persuasive communication. Pursuing my passion for cloud computing, I then dove into the start-up sector, holding multifunctional roles in marketing and sales for several organizations before starting my own consulting service, Scholar Tech. This range of experience demonstrates my curiosity, drive, and ability to influence others – all skills that would be critical to influencing program stakeholders and growing the research program.

In my next career opportunity, I would like to continue maximizing my business development skills as I build a sustained career at Big Pharm Tech. I thrive in innovative environments where I can use my creativity and curiosity to implement change. The Research Program Director role would be a great opportunity for me to apply my marketing expertise with digital campaigns and use my research experience to produce qualified studies.

Finally, I am interested in the director position because of my prior experience in scientific management. After working in different sectors in varying capacities, working at Big Pharm Tech would help me return to using business strategy and overseeing research – two activities that I have enjoyed the most.

I welcome the opportunity to further discuss my qualifications with you. Thank you in advance for your consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon.
