Zoologist Cover Letter

A zoologist's cover letter efficiently projects the candidate's knowledge and understanding in various sectors of zoology, such as animal behavior and evolution, wildlife conservation, adaptation research, marine ecology, animal physiology, marsupial reproduction, conservation management, policy making for natural resources management, zoography or descriptive zoology, biomedicine, behavioral ecology, etc. As there are several sectors in zoology, one must carefully display their abilities in the related field of interest, while paying equal importance to their professional experience and education.

Besides, there are other sectors, such as ethology or the study of animal behavior, herpetology, entomology, mammalogy, evolutionary biology, palaeontology, molecular biology, and ornithology. It is a good practice to mention your proficiency in these sectors of zoology, and your skills in identifying and classifying several species to study their structures, genetics, reproduction, variations, and group development and mechanisms. It would be an added advantage if you mention your familiarity with the recently emerging technology and studies like systematics, phylogenetics, cladistics, phylogeography etc, to classify various kinds of species, for it will only enhance your application.

The contents of a zoologist cover letter depend upon the nature of job the candidate is seeking, although the layout of the contents remains the same - introduction, the main body highlighting the skills and abilities, and a conclusion.
