Thanks a lot!!! See you soon :-)

Dear Mr. [Name]

I am a French student in the ENSPG (The Grenoble National Engineering School for Physics) – INPG (Grenoble Institute of technology), a 5th year-degree school. I am in 4th year-degree. I found your laboratory on the [University] website and I want to realize a training period between June 4th and September 14th, 2007 in your research physics laboratory.

Condensed matter physics is very interesting. Moreover, your project “Microwave properties of superconductors” corresponds exactly to what I want to learn. Indeed, superconductors are fascinating: firstly by their null resistance but more by the expulsion of magnetic fields. Investigate the microwave properties of superconductors by finding information about the nature and the properties of the electron pairing would be exciting for me. Furthermore, I would like to work in your laboratory in order to learn more with the trade of researcher. Indeed, I hope to become researcher later.

My formation gives me serious 4th year degree knowledge with courses like electromagnetism, solid-state physics, physics of material and other fundamental physics courses.

I join you my CV, a letter from my school and a general documentation about my school. Note that the letter from my school is dedicated to an industry, but it could be also sent to a laboratory in a foreign country.

Dear Dr. Smith:

I am a fourth-year French student at the ENSPG (The Grenoble National Engineering School for Physics) – INPG (Grenoble Institute of Technology), a 5-year-degree school. I have read through the information about your laboratory on the [University] website, and I very much would like to participate in a training period with your research physics laboratory between June 4th and September 14th, 2007.

I am particularly interested in condensed matter physics, and your project on the microwave properties of superconductors corresponds exactly to the kind of research I wish to pursue. Superconductors are fascinating for their null resistance and their expulsion of magnetic fields, and investigating the microwave properties of superconductors by exploring the nature and properties of electron pairing would be exciting and challenging for me. Furthermore, working in your laboratory would help prepare me for the profession of researcher.

My program has to date prepared me with knowledge from course work including electromagnetism, solid-state physics, physics of materials and other fundamental physics courses. I am enclosing my curriculum vitae, a letter of reference from my school, and some general information about my school. The letter of reference is directed to an industry but is also applicable to an institution such as your own.
I hope that you will find my application of interest, and I look forward to the possibility of hearing positively from you. Should you have any further questions, please contact me at [mailing address; telephone number; email address].

Sincerely yours,
Thanks for your correction. I've modified a lot of sentences.
