I work very hard on each statement that I produce because  I trust you as well to recommend me to your friends and colleagues if you are very pleased with your statement. 

Master's Chemistry, Europe, Saudi Arabian

A 29-year-old man from Saudi Arabia, I completed my BS Degree in Chemical Engineering in December of 2011 and I now have 4.5 years of experience as a professional researcher. I have contributed to investigations resulting in 4 published papers in internationally peer-reviewed journals, one of which I am listed as the first author. These investigations have also resulted in 9 patent applications.

The XXXX is my first choice for graduate school and I hope to continue to study in your program at the doctoral level after proving myself as a graduate student because of the sheer excellence of your university with its world class research facilities and the comprehensive nature of your program. My studies will be fully paid by the company for which I work.

I look forward to investing the balance of my professional life in the search for solutions that can help to solve energy/pollution problems, engaging in cutting edge research, and proving myself as a world-class scientist. I want to tackle challenges in Chemistry that are related to our search for energy forms that are both affordable and renewable. I am especially engaged in the study of catalysis and look forward to many lively discussions at XXXX with my colleagues who are also extensively engaged in the search for ways to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels as an energy source and the search for ways that alternatively energy sources such as Hydrogen production from water using sunlight can be made more affordable. I am deeply concerned with the way in which our dependency on the fossil fuel sources has such a huge, negative impact on our environment and I look forward to becoming a part of the community at XXXX where I will be able to brainstorm alongside so many like minded individuals.

My historical and ongoing research interests include nanotechnology, surface and materials science, and catalysis with emphasis on metal oxides, metals, novel nanostructured nanocatalysts for energy-related materials and everything having to do with materials science and environmental sustainability.  I have special expertise in core- and valence-level photoelectron spectroscopies: XPS, UPS, and especially the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials. I am especially pleased to bring to your research intensive program extensive experience in the design and building of state-of-the-art surface characterization equipment and ultra-high-vacuum-based (UHV) systems.         

Highlights of my career so far include making the Dean’s List during two of my last three semesters as an undergraduate student in Chemical Engineering at the University of Alabama during the Fall of 2010 and the Spring of 2011. I have also particularly enjoyed my professional position since finishing my degree, serving as an Engineer with the SABIC CRI Center at KAUST since 2012 studying Ceria based catalyst by means of TPD, XRD, TEM, and XPS to gain insights into system properties from surface science perspectives; and finding correlations with hydrogen production through solar/thermal water splitting experiments. We are working on the design and installation of a surface science lab at the SABIC Corporate Research Center at KAUST. I thank you for considering my application to your distinguished program.
