Effective Recommendation Letter For Postdoctoral Fellow #1

It gives me great pleasure to provide a recommendation letter attesting the qualities of Mr. XXX XXX. He has been one of the brightest students of mine during his four year Bachelor of Engineering program in Mechanical Engineering (XXXX – XXXX), under my tenure, firstly as Professor and later as Head of Department of Mechanical Engineering at Government Engineering College, Bilaspur. He has kept in touch with his teachers later also, apprising them of his progress, and I particularly remember meeting him in XXXX while he was working with a bank. XXXXX has consistently shown such a high desire to learn that I could not turn down his request for a recommendation.

During the Engineering program, I taught him Operations Research (Semester VII) where his performance was on par with the toppers. In over 25 years of teaching, though I have known other students with talent equivalent to XXXXX, many of them lacked his good nature and humility. Moreover, what stood out was his genuine intellectual curiosity, accompanied by an excitement for and diligence towards work. Since I have also been his guide for his Final Year project work titled “Study of chip control in machining by the use of ramp type chip breaker” I can readily affirm the presence of these qualities. As part of the project work, he not only worked hard to complete his practical work in the Production Technology Lab and the Machine shop at the Workshop of the Mechanical Engineering department, but also came up with an impeccable report detailing his work. Such dedication and inclination towards practical work, will, I believe, definitely be put to good use during research work at a graduate program. Moreover, the report submitted by him after the Industrial Training at Bhilai Steel Plant (BSP) of Steel Authority of India Ltd. (SAIL) at Bhilai (Chhattisgarh) was one of the best amongst his peer group.

At a personal level, XXXXX is an honest, well-disciplined and industrious student. Apart from academics, he actively engaged himself in numerous co-curricular activities. He was the compère and member (organizing committee) for various events organized under the aegis of Mechanical Engineering Society of our college and under my mentorship, notably the Engineers’ Day celebrations in 2003, 2004 and 2005, the Alumni Association Function in 2004, and the “Mech-Fest” – an extravaganza that combined both technical as well as cultural events in 2006. His attributes as a team player, public speaking abilities and command over the English language were particularly on display during these occasions. Additionally, I have observed his energetic participation in the more student oriented functions such as Juniors’ Welcome Function (2004) and Seniors’ Farewell Function (2004).

I highly recommend that you consider his application to the Masters or Ph.D. programs at your university, as he will be a wonderful addition to your student body and a great asset to your research team. I am sure you will find him to be a well-rounded individual whose myriad talents will definitely shine further under your guidance and encouragement. If further information is desired, you may kindly contact me.

Effective Recommendation Letter For Postdoctoral Fellow #2

It is pleasure to write recommendation letter for Dr. ***********who wants to upgrade his designation. I have known him for about five years since he joined for the graduation at our department, xxxxxxx

 His work involves understanding the role xxxxxxx which consists of a highly conserved heptapeptide repeat: xxxxxx. He have identified the of total set of proteins interacts with xxx of RNAP-II using proteomics and Nanо-LC/MS, MALDI TOF/TOF. He further explored the mechanism of interaction of these identified protein/transcription factors with respect to RNAP-II. In his brief tenure of PhD he identified important kinases which phosphorylates a key residue of the C-terminal domain of RNA polymerase II during transcription and have tried to explore its possible function. The finding increases the complexity of the different stages of transcription and ‘Ups the xxxxx code’ necessary for Gene regulation.

*********** has substantial experience in the area of Molecular Biology, Protein biophysics, Gene regulation and Transcription. He is capable of planning and executing the experiments independently. His scientific achievement exemplifies in the form of his publications and prestigious national fellowship awards achieved like CSIR-JRF,DBT-JRF,ICMR-JRF and GATE-xxxx

Regarding his personal qualities, he is extremely well behaved and gets along well with his colleagues and is always ready to lend a helping hand to them. ***********was an integral member in upgrading the Lab and the department with personal and professional behaviours.

Effective Recommendation Letter For Postdoctoral Fellow #10

To Dr. XXX,

I am writing in support of Mr. xxxxxx’s application for a post-doctoral position in your lab. I have known xxxxx for the past few years as a member of his thesis (doctoral) committee. He is a very hard working student in Dr. xxxxxx’s lab and I have closely monitored his progress during the doctoral committee meetings which are conducted every year. xxxxx has the scientific aptitude to excel as a research scientist.

xxxx’s PhD thesis study revolves around identifying the multiple cell signalling  pathways that regulate tumour formation upon the loss of xxxx.  As part of his thesis work, he has published xxx first author research paper in xxx and will soon communicate his second paper.

During his laboratory courses, he has developed very good hands on various cell biology and biochemical techniques. He has mastered the basic techniques in molecular biology like DNA/RNA isolation, PCR, protein expression and characterization, bacterial and mammalian cell culture, multiple cell-based assays and animal handling. He also has the ability to think independently about his research and has used this effectively to drive forward his PhD work. He is efficient in performing all the experiments by himself and I sincerely believe that such independent approach is an asset which will help him tremendously in his scientific career. xxxxx is a well-organized person, and I am sure that he will be quickly able to grasp new concepts and objectives of  any given project.

I would strongly and whole heartedly support xxxx’s application for a post-doctoral position in your lab.

Sincerely

Dr. xxxx

Scientific Officer xxx, xxxx, India.
