Free Sample Personal Statement in Biochemistry
With the approach of new century, the developing China is requiring
better trained and more highly educated men and women than ever before
in history. In order to make more contributions to the society and, at
the same time, satisfy my keen interest in science, I am looking forward
to beginning my graduate study. I heard of Case Western Reserve
University as early as when I was an undergraduate student. She is one
of the most highly regarded universities in the world and is an ideal
place for ambitious youth.
I plan to study for Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Case Western Reserve
University with special interests in metabolism, macromolecular
synthesis, and protein crystal growth. I have had plentiful
preparations. First, when being an undergraduate in the Department of
Chemical Engineering at Tsinghua University, I got very extensive and
intensive education. I took many courses on chemistry and the related
subjects, and earned high scores for most of them. Second, my major,
Polymer, can be put into good use in Biochemistry programs because
Polymer is closely related with biological Macromolecule. Third, I have
working experience that enriches my theory and laboratory skills.
From 1990 to now, I have been engaged as an Assistant Engineer by the
Research institute, Beijing Yanshan Petrochemical Corporation (RIBYPC).
In the first year, I was in charge of a 5-litre reactor for
polymerization of Carboxylated Butadiene-Styene Latex. Then I was
transferred to another research group to synthesize PET/PHB copolymer, a
kin of polyester, which has the property of Liquid Crystal. I am the
assistant head of the group. We can prepare the novel polymer with high
molecule weight and excellent property in a 2-litre stainless steel
reactor. During this monomers, with purity of more than 99.99%; this
made my leader very satisfied.
More than four years of working experiences expand my capacity. I often
make use of NMR, X-ray, DSC and other instrumental methods for research.
Among them, I am most skilled in NMR reactors, I have experiences on
solving problems of Engineering and Mechanics. What is more, I am
familiar with computer operation and some application software. The
above information about my specialty may be helpful for you to evaluate
It is said that the 21st century will be the age of Life Science. I hope
to enter the esteemed Case Western Reserve University to face this
challenge. I am confident tat I shall be an excellent fellow. After
completing my graduate study, I would like to return to my homeland and
make use of my knowledge to serve the people.
By the way, I would like to give thanks to my parents. Being their
oldest son, I am offered the most formal education and the deepest love.
I never forget the 18-year’s life with them. Twelve years in the
countryside and six years in Shengli Oil Field bestowed me the character
of diligence, resolution, and perseverance, as well as the deep love of
nature and life. I am also indebted to my dear wife.
Without her never-ended encouragement and support in these years, I
could not become closer and closer to the gate of the eminent Case
Western Reserve University.
