Personnel department
XYZ University

Dear Prof. PQR,

This letter is with reference to the advertisement in ABC newspaper regarding the job opportunity to work with XYZ University as a senior faculty member for xxxx (subject) department. I have completed my undergraduate degree with excellence and currently I am completing my PhD. On 'xxxx(Subject for PhD)'. The title of my PhD thesis is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Title of the thesis). I have explained xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx(Contents of thesis) in my PhD thesis.

I always had a flair for teaching. I believe that if you share the knowledge you have with others, then it grows. I have been working with GHI University as faculty for xxxxx (subject). While working in GHI University, I had the opportunity to interact with students, and senior faculty members. This experience helped me to get depth to my knowledge of xxxx (subject). I had a chance to learn new styles of teaching like classroom teaching, brainstorming sessions, discussions & arguments etc. This experience gave me a new dimension of thinking.

Rather than the set methods of teaching I prefer student centered teaching. During my working tenure at GHI University I have worked with students on their ability level. I am confident that I know the psychology of students and I would definitely be able to improve them academically.

Furthermore, I have been very adaptable and a good leader throughout my career. I was a team leader for xxxx (Science fair) back in college. I have been an excellent student and I was very good with convincing other people. I believe that teaching is much more than taking classroom lectures & I always aim at teaching my students how to apply their knowledge in life.

I have attached my resume. I have enclosed three references from my previous employers. If you need any more information, please feel free to contact me. I will happily provide it to you. You can reach me via phone on 212 - xxxxxxx or via email - I will like to attend the face to face discussion on the same as per your convenience. Thank you for taking your time & consideration. I am looking forward to hear from you.

Prof. John White
