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

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