4.1 Guestworker applications
January 14, 1994
Dear Professor Smith,
Your current position Allow me to
introduce myself. I am a researcher in the Department of Component
Technology at the Center for Measurement Standards (CMS), which
is similar to ABC Institute. Educational background
I am an engineer with a master's degree in Materials Science and Engineering
and have received special training in thin film deposition photolithography
and chemical etching. Current projectI am
currently designing a process that integrates these technologies for the
development of a pressure sensor that is based on a metal thin strain gauge.
We plan to miniaturize this sensor in the near future.
How their organization meets your organization's research or manufacturing
interests Our laboratory would like me to receive training in
micromachining technology, e.g., wet/dry silicon etching and silicon to silicon
fusion bonding. I hope that your laboratory, one of the leaders in this field
of research, can provide me with the opportunity to learn about sensor
manufacturing technology. Proposed itinerary during your training
I wish to learn about sensor manufacturing technology at your laboratory for
three months this year, preferably during March through June.
Pressure sensors and related technology are what we are most concerned with.
Financial arrangements The proposed format is
that of a self-supported guest worker at your laboratory.
Reference(s) By the way, I have an aunt
living in a nearby Cupertino. Her name is Dr. Lin Mei Mei and she can be
directly contacted at (408)1234567 (tel) or (408)2345678 (fax). She can
provide further clarification, if necessary.
I would greatly appreciate your comments regarding this proposal. Thanks for your
assistance. I look forward to our future cooperation.
4.2 Guestworker application
July 4, 1991
Dear Dr. Jones,
Your organization's current need
The Pressure/Vacuum Measurement Laboratory at the Center for
Measurement Standards is planning to develop the primary pressure
standard (PPS) of the mercury manometer so as to promote and
strengthen our laboratory's pressure measurement capability.
Their organization's ability to assist you
We have heard that your group has much experience in research involving
the PPS of the mercury manometer. Request for guest
worker positionWould it be possible for me to serve as a guest
worker in your laboratory? If granted such an opportunity, my primary
objective would be to study how to design and set up the mercury manometer
Background information of your organization
Our institute, the Center for Measurement Standards, a subsidiary of the
Industrial Technology Research Institute, has been entrusted with the
responsibility of establishing and maintaining national standards and
traceability systems. We also provide calibration services, technical
consulting, and metrology training to the local industrial sector.
After reviewing your literature, I find that the systems and projects
of your laboratory, especially the mercury manometer, are quite
compatible with my interests.
Time schedule of guest worker period A six
month period as a guest worker would probably be the most appropriate
time frame. If my application is accepted, I can start no earlier than
October and end no later than May 1992.
Enclosures Attached please find my personal
resume. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
4.3 Guest worker applications
August 23, 1991
Dear Ms. Brown,
Current position and academic background (including
attached resume and recommendation) I am a researcher at the Center
for Measurement Standards, a subsidiary of the Industrial Technology
Research Instiute, Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C. I have master's degrees in both
Statistics and Business Administration. The attached resume and
recommendation provide further details concerning my background. I am
currently a member of the Mass Laboratory at the Center for Measurement
Standards. Who referred you to their organization
Dr. Lin referred me to you, and said that you have been quite instrumental
in the development of the Mass Laboratory at ABC Institute. I was also
impressed with the literature ABC sent to our laboratory, and I admire the
1000 kg mass comparator we purchased.
Your own research interests, as related to proposed
guest worker stay I am particularly interested in such topics as
mass weighing design models, the calculation of uncertainty, and the
Measurement Assurance Program. I have read the NBS SP676 and would like to
obtain more detailed information to make a proper introduction to our
laboratory. Meanwhile, the calibration of our standard weights traceable
to ABC Institute is going to expire shortly. I would like to hand carry
them to your institute for recalibration.
Request for guest worker position I would like
to serve as a guest worker at your laboratory for six to eight months.
Source of funding All of the expenses incurred
during my stay would be covered by my organization. Time
constraints If possible, I would prefer to begin no earlier than November
1, 1991. Besides the above-mentioned subjects, I hope that I will be able to
spend some time taking assignments directly from you. Please consider my request
and inform me of your decision as soon as possible.
4.4 Guestworker application
May 28, 1993
Dear Dr. Thompson,
Commendation of the organization's reputation
in a particular field ABC is internationally renowned for its
precision in measurement standards. Your division, the Mechanical and
Optical Metrology Division, is also known as one of the best
laboratories in this field. Request for guest
worker position I would like to apply to serve as a guest worker
in your Division, during the months between December 1992 and June 1993.
Time constraints and source of funding during guest
worker stay I have already been allotted half a year to conduct
research work at another institution. All related expenses would be covered
by my institute, the Center for Measurement Standards.
Educational and professional background (along with
any particular research interests) The enclosed resume provides
further information on my educational background in physics, and my recent
professional experience in laser frequency stabilization and laser scanning
microscopes. I am particularly interested in studying laser frequency
stabilization at your laboratory. However, I am open to being assigned to
any project which is relevant to my background experiences.
I look forward to our future cooperation and appreciate your thoughtful
deliberation in considering this application.
