A cover letter sample is exactly that—a sample. Use this Biochemical Engineer cover letter sample as inspiration but don’t copy it entirely. You never want to submit a cover letter that looks exactly the same as your competitor’s cover letter (or a cover letter sample you find online). You must differentiate yourself.

Dear Dr. Montgomery:
As a biochemical engineer skilled in conducting biological research in wet lab environments, I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the biochemical engineer position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Burns Industries, Inc.:
- Aptitude for assisting multidisciplinary teams in designing and implementing pipelines for recombinant protein expression and purification.
- Expertise in assessing states of purified materials using biochemical assays utilizing electron microscopy.
- Advanced training and field experience in biochemical engineering, applied mathematics, materials science, fluid mechanics, and chemical process design.
As an intern at Burns Enterprises, I aided staff biochemists in general lab operations, which included maintaining lab records, reading and recording instrument findings, maintaining cell cultures, weighing reagents, and ordering lab supplies. In this capacity, I also assisted the senior biochemist with collecting and analyzing data for the company’s first mutagenesis study. As a team, we used our findings to successfully obtain an NSF grant for $350,000, which allowed us to expand the study for two years. As your biochemical engineer position requires expertise similar to mine, I believe I would serve Burns Industries, Inc. well in this role.
I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my chemical analysis and engineering experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your time and consideration.
