Respected Dr. Gerry,

I am Jonathan Adams and I am writing this letter to apply for the position of a research assistant to work under you as a part of my research time under my PhD studies. I have always admired you and have closely followed your work for the last 10 years. It would be a pleasure and an honor to get a chance to work under your guidance.

Sir, I have completed my bachelors’ and master’s in Mathematics from New York University and completed my MPhil from University of Ohio. My research subject is Rings and Groups and to work under the master of this subject would really help my research work and my career. I promise to be very hardworking, diligent and honest in my approach and would not let you down, if given a chance.

I am enclosing my credential documents with this letter for your reference.

Thanking you


Jonathan Adams
