Subject: Application for position of Assistant Professor
Dear Ms. Eddings,
I wish to apply for the position of Assistant Professor as advertised. I have the necessary skills and qualifications for this post, as well as the necessary experience. I therefore believe that what I have to offer to Barton College – North Carolina will be of great benefit to the company.
I have a B.S in Science from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD. My dissertation is entitled War and Knowledge Production. As you can see, I am highly suited to the post of Assistant Professor at Barton College – North Carolina.
I have some experience in teaching and tutoring students when I worked at Western Carolina University – North Carolina. I was 7 years there and established a very good working relationship with the staff, as well as with the students.
I take a friendly approach to teaching, believing that my students are simply equals who have yet to gain the knowledge I can impart to them. I find this approach helps to break traditional “them” and “us” type barriers between students and their tutors.
I also feel that the students gain more as a result of using this approach, not to mention the satisfaction that the teacher can also gain. I was highly thought of in my previous post, and I know I can repeat my standard of professionalism at Barton College as well.
I am sure that my proven ability to manage and maintain the highest standards as an Assistant Professor will be of the greatest benefit to Barton College, and I have confidence that I can make a significant contribution to the college.
I may be contacted at (222)-408-6921, or by email at email@example.com. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you at interview level, and I thank you for the opportunity to be considered for the post of Assistant Professor.
