Dear Dr. Scientist,
I’m writing to tell you how much I admire your work in the field of science that you study. Your lab has done some tremendous work researching very important topics of significance. I just loved your latest research article and I’m sure it made your university or institution proud!
In any case, I’m looking for a postdoc position in a lab like yours. Please let me know what day I can start.
