Dear M.D.'s, Ph.D.'s, D.V.M.'s, etc. in the UK and EC,
I am an undergraduate at Reed College in Portland Oregon, USA,
about to graduate with a B.A. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
I plan to attend graduate school at Washington University in
St. Louis, Missouri, in the Department of Immunology, to obtain my Ph.D.
Currently, however, I am attempting to find a lab job in the UK
or at any other english-speaking European laboratory for the coming year,
and defer my admission to grad school for this period.
My reasons for this job search are simple; I wish to take a year
off from my studies and have an international experience, but would like to
maintain my involvement in science. This is the one time in my life when I
will have the opportunity for a year to live in a foreign country, so I'm
trying to arrange full time employment abroad.
My research experience is extensive and includes knowledge of most
standard biochemical techniques, as well as some genetic and cellular
work (PCR, FACS, etc.) I am currently working on my undergraduate thesis
project, the complete synthesis of a putative enzyme inhibitor, so my
chemistry background is solid as well. I would love the chance to work
in an immunology-related field, but I would be happy for any opportunity.
I won't bother with a full c.v. here, but one is obviously available, as
well as excellent letters of recommendation from current and past
I ask that any of you who either have or know of, an available
research or lab tech position, in academia or industry, beginning around
next September and lasting for about a year, PLEASE respond via email to
the address below. Thank you for your time.
