Dear Sir/Madam,
I am looking for research position in cell or molecular biology
or related fields. I have done fair amount of independent
research work as it is stated in enclosed resume. I am proficient
in all experimental methods  listed below and have had
successfully completed both of my independent projects. Currently
I am a student in Yeshiva University, New York, majoring in
biology and computer science and planing to continue my  studies
by going for Ph.D in Biology. I would be really interested in
working on a project where I can employ my skills and knowledge
from previous work, but I am ready and interested to learn any
new techniques necessary.
     Unfortunately, I started working on getting summer position
pretty late and most of the places are already taken. If the
laboratory is located anywhere near Manhattan I will be available
to continue my  summer work until december for about 4-5 hours a
day on weekdays and for unlimited amount of time on sundays. 

Now the worst part of the letter. Unfortunately, I am not able to
work as a volunteer (even though I can if you can offer me room
and board) since I am here, in the US, alone and have no one to
support me during the summer. That would mean that  I am looking
for a MINIMAL payment which would pull me through the summer
(from June to September). I am not particular sure what this
number is outside of NYC, but in NYC where I have place to live
it is about $900-$1000  for the summer.   
     I would really appreciate any considerations or advises you
can offer me. If you yourself are not interested but you might
know someone who might be, please freely forward this letter. I
can be always reached at my phone in my dorm or at my e-mail
address. I would really appreciate any help you can offer.

Truly yours
Sergei Levin
