  1. Dear Sir,

    With due respect I have completed B.Sc in Chemical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET) in the year 2000. I have worked in a heavy Chemical production industry for 2 years, worked as a research assistant at BUET (Chemical Engineering department)in a ” Medical waste treatment ” project for one year, worked in a food graded salt refined Industry for 2 years & working in the Natural Gas distribution company since January 2005 in Bangladesh.

    I want to complete my post-graduation and Ph.D. I would like to get this opportunity to be a part of your unit I am very glad to see research topics. Pls write me what should be done for me for getting the opportunity. If you help me I would be grateful to you. I look forward to hearing your response. If you want I will send you my details.

    Sincerely yours,

    Md. Moktadul Islam

    I have worked on bio-inorganic aspects of porphyrin chemistry under the supervision of Prof. D. Mohajer. Based on my academic experiences, I have a very strong background in inorganic chemistry and also a wide range of practical and analytical skills ideally suitable for continuing my carrier as a researcher in research environments. I am looking for a position where my knowledge and experiences could be applied to provide innovative solutions.

    At present, I work on a project, thin film and Dye-sensitized solar cell, in material Science in Sharif University under the supervision of Dr. M.R. Mohammadi.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience, concerning my request.

    Please contact me should require further information.

    Sincerely,

    Massoumeh Abbasi
