I am applying to PhD program in biology, and I need to write a short passage about my "Future Research Interests". What do you think???
Thank you :-)
I am interesting in research in several fields in biology. My major interests are cellular and molecular biology, and especially genetics. These topics interested me a lot because they are very promising and revolutionary fields. I believe that study of genetics (and human genetics in particular), could be one of the most important accomplishments for scientists in scientific history. Personally, I would like to be involved in research about gene regulation and the involvement of genes in development of human diseases.
To succeed in PhD program I will rely on my educational background in biology, my experience and past researches. I believe that my passion, creativity and the ability to work independently as well as in group are the traits which will help me to become a successful researcher.
I would like to join the biology department at XXX University primarily due to its interdisciplinary nature of studies and wide of research areas available. Graduate study at XXX University will give me an opportunity to pursue my interests in molecular biology and genetics through interdisciplinary approaches. It will allow me to interact with students and researchers with diverse educational backgrounds and interests. I look forward to enhancing my skills and knowledge through working in the research environment in the biology department.
In the future, I would like to be involved in research in academic or industrial settings. Finally, I would like also be involved in academic teaching of future generations of researches by sharing my knowledge and findings. Also I would like to share my knowledge and findings with future generations of researches by teaching.
