MOTIVATION LETTER I would like to apply for internships in your Institute starting earlierly. Currently, I am working as a junior research fellow in Indo-French project at Kumaraguru College of technology, India. My main fields of study in both bachelor and post graduation are microbiology, biochemistry, rDNA technology, Plant biotechnology, Animal Biotechnology, Molecular genetics, and Genomics & proteomics. During my studies, I have found that my interests are focused particularly in the area of biochemistry, Molecular genetics, Cell and Molecular biology, and rDNA technology with emphasis on lipid metabolism, cell structures, molecular mechanism of cell cycle, and cell signalling. I would like to visit United States of America and want to gain work experience in my field of study so as to broaden my horizons while enhancing my career profile. I feel I would be best utilized the facilities prevailing in the institute to increase my knowledge relevant to this field and I feel comfortable in both working within a team environment and on individual tasks. Working in an internship would give me an excellent insight into your institute and be an outstanding opportunity for me to explore different working methods and practice the knowledge I gained at institute. Friends and acquaintances all testify to the fact that I relate to people easily and that I am able to adapt quickly to new surroundings and situations. I have learnt to work towards, and achieve my aims with great commitment and perseverance. An internship with you is of great interest to me and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
