I'm struggling with my English writing. Here I attach the cover letter for the postdoctoral position. Please give me some comments on the letter. All comments will be greatly appreciated.
Dear Prof. XXX:
I am writing this letter to inquire about the post-doctoral position at the University of XXX in conjunction with the XXX Fellowship program as advertised in your department web page.
I am a PhD candidate in astronomy at the XXX in Republic of Korea, and will complete my PhD degree by August 2011. My thesis focuses on the star formation in galactic scales by studying the thermal and dynamical evolution of ISM in disk galaxies. I have carried out extensive numerical simulations using a recently developed magnetohydrodynamics code, which is parallelized using MPI. This experience fits very well for this position in order to carry forward numerical simulations of the formation and evolution of star-disk systems. The research topic on the star formation in small scales that you are interested in are also one of my research goals.
Three letters of recommendation will be sent to your mail before XXX. After you have had an opportunity to review my CV and research statement, I would like to set up an appointment to talk with you further about how my background and experience could benefit your group. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via my cell phone at (XX)-XX-XXXX-XXXX or via e-mail at XXX@XXX. Thank you for your time and consideration.
