Dear Mr Baker,

I am writing regarding the research assistant position in your university. As a graduate student, I have the necessary academic background to be a competent contributor to your research team. Moreover, assisting with your research directly compliments my career as I plan to pursue a masteral degree in this field in the future.

In my most recent research position, I was in charge of collecting data in a field research project exploring the impacts of temperature changes in rivers and streams on plant life. That research was recently published in the British Journal of Ecology.

If I am given the chance to work on your research, I am certain that I would prove to be a worthy addition to your already talented research team. I would welcome an opportunity for a personal interview to discuss your needs and the results you can expect from me in addressing those needs.
