Dear Ms. Billings:
I am writing to apply for your vacant Associate Professor position in the Engineering Department of Upper Echelon University, which I saw posted today on that department’s website. I have served as an assistant professor and Associate Professor at several colleges and universities since 2002 and am confident that I can bring my strong lecturing, curriculum development and leadership skills to the position currently open at your institution.
I have taught classes as small as 12 students and larger classes exceeding 50 students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, I have successfully mentored seven instructors who have been promoted to assistant professors in engineering.
Below is a summary of my achievements and qualifications that I feel reflect my ability to assume the position you are currently offering:
Served as assistant professor of mechanical engineering for Blue Chip College, 2002-08
Promoted to Associate Professor, GenTech University, 2009
Oversaw mentorship program for instructors and assistant professors, GenTech University, 2009-11
Awarded Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University
Through the course of my career, I have built strong classroom management and organizational skills and a thorough understanding of educational technology needed to facilitate my students’ learning experience.
I look forward to discussing your opportunity and my qualifications at length at a time convenient for you.
Thank you for your consideration.
Stephen E. Reece
