22\opening{Dear Application Committee:}
23
24I wish to apply for a [job]
25My application, curriculum vitae, list of abstracts,
26and statement of future research plans are enclosed.
27I have arranged for \nobreak{letters} of recommendation from
28 K.~Buzzard, R.~Coleman, H.~Lenstra, B.~Mazur, L.~Merel,
29and K.~Ribet to be sent separately.

31I am a graduate student at the University of California at
32Berkeley and expect to receive my Ph.D.\  degree in May 2000 from
33the Department of Mathematics. Under the
34guidance of Professor Hendrik W.~Lenstra, I am currently writing my
35dissertation which is entitled {\em Explicit approaches to modular
36abelian varieties}.  My interests are in the
37areas of number theory, modular forms, special values of
38$L$-functions, Galois representations, and algorithms.
39I have had frequent conversations with [...].
40
41
42In my dissertation work, I develop methods for
43explicitly working with modular forms and abelian
44varieties,  and then apply my results to study Mazur's notion
45of visibility of Shafarevich-Tate groups in connection with the
46Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture.
47In addition, I give new examples of modular icosahedral Galois
48representations, and have developed  a package of modular forms software.
49
50I have four years of teaching experience, and have given many
51seminar talks.  I have taught three courses
52in the areas of Discrete Mathematics and College Algebra, and
53served as a teaching assistant for Calculus
54and Linear Algebra courses as well as for a graduate level
55course at the IAS/Park City conference.
56I wrote educational {\sc Matlab} software as part of
57an NSF sponsored curriculum development effort.
58
59I am very committed to pursuing a  research
60career in academia, and look forward
61to hearing from you regarding my application. If you have any
62further questions, please  send email to
63{\sf was@math.berkeley.edu} or call me at 510-883-9938.
64Thank you for your time and consideration.
