Dear sir/madam, 

I am writing you to express my interest in working as a medical writer in your company. I’m a highly motivated, selfstarting scientistturned writer and editor.  

I had a PhD in cell and developmental biology. After having some postdoctoral research experiences in the UK, I moved on to develop my writing and editing skills. I joined one of the UK’s national newspapers, the Guardian, as an editor. I’m now a UKbased writer and commentator for several media outlets of China. 

I have a good understanding of cell and molecular biology in general, and first hand experiences in research. The several research projects I involved covered a wide area of life science, from cell culture, living cell assay, biochemistry, to molecular biology. Making sense of new materials quickly and expressing the core message with clarity have become a necessity from my research days to my current writing assignments.  

Besides conducting research, I did some supervision when I was a postdoctoral research associate. I supervised an MSc student for two of his research projects with excellent results, who later received a full scholarship to enrol into a PhD programme in a leading UK university. 

When I worked as an editor for the Guardian, frequent verbal and written communication was essential part of the job. One of my responsibilities as part of the Guardian’s online comments section team involves contacting and communicating with contributors, commissioning articles then reviewing and suggesting revisions, copyediting and sometimes translating the pieces.  

As a scientist and a writer, in both environments, my work demand critical thinking, problemsolving skills and attention to details. The role of editor in a news organisation also requires me to comprehend large amount of materials and come up with simple outlines within tight deadline. Part of my daily work in the Guardian was to write short pieces to summarize that day’s headline news for the Chinese readers.  

Before I joined the Guardian, I started and then ran an online project for the young generation of Chinese in the UK. With shoestring budget, I had to create contents and maintain the databasedriven website myself, while at the same time promoting and marketing the project to the targeted audiences through email campaigns and media contacts. 

I’m looking for an opportunity to combine my knowledge and experiences in life science research with my passion for science and medicine in general. Thank you for your time.
