A professor at our college of medicine is looking to hire undergraduate students to conduct research in the immunology of aids. We will be trained for different research projects and then conduct our research in a hospital laboratory. I sent an email showing my interest in the position and I must send in a resume and a cover letter with my interest and why I should be selected for the position. The resume is no problem Ive had one done already. My only problem is the cover letter with my interest and why I should be picked. I've never done research before and dont know what my interests could be in the research field. I really wouldnt know how to go about writing something like this. Does anyone have any ideas or can help me get started?
