How to write the best cover letter to land that job

The Challenge:

Probatech is an intelligence and strategy company that aims to unlock potential by ensuring healthcare products are developed to their full potential. We are unsettled by the fact that many diseases are without treatments or vaccines, mainly because of a lack of guidance. To change this situation, we carry out research and analysis to give our clients guidance on what to study, where to invest and who to partner with to reach their goals.

We are looking for an analyst to help us to achieve this. We would like someone to work with us on a contract basis for 12 weeks initially, with the potential to extend this. You will need to be available for a minimum of 20 hours a week, with the possibility of working full-time. This is an opportunity to impact the development of novel drugs or vaccines, whilst learning how to research, interpret and analyse information that is used to drive decisions in the pharmaceutical industry. You will be working directly with the founder, who has a PhD in Drug Discovery and has consulted for several Fortune 100 pharma companies.

What we're looking for:

  • The Skillset
    • Education/training in the life sciences with an undergraduate (minimum, e.g. BSc) or advanced degree (bonus, e.g. MSc or PhD)
    • Comfortable with technology, with proficiency in the Microsoft Office Suite at a minimum
    • Some knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry
    • Fluent in English (other languages are a bonus)
    • Optional: Prior experience with business analysis, consulting or data science
    • Optional: Experience in a pharma/biotech startup or in an investor environment
  • Your availability:
    • At least 20 hours per week
    • Working hours are flexible but should have at least 4 hours within 9am - 5pm GMT
  • You:
    • Are a quick learner, and adaptable to new concepts and different tasks
    • Have great attention to detail
    • Share our values:
      • Openness
      • Scientific mindset
      • Honesty
      • Reliability
      • Community

What you'll be doing

By Month 1, you will:

  • Learn more about R&D in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Learn how to interpret, analyse and report information that can change the fortunes of healthcare innovators
  • Discover new tools and tricks for automation of your research and for project management

By Month 3, you will:

  • Hone your analytical and strategic skills for use in different contexts
  • Build advanced reports to guide customers towards successful outcomes
  • Manage small projects and learn how they fit into the wider team's work


  • Work in a startup environment and contribute to the building of a company
  • Access many learning opportunities, working together with a pharma industry expert
  • Gain insider knowledge on strategy in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Contribute to the success of companies developing new cures and vaccines
  • Develop transferable skills like automation
  • Flexible working hours
  • Negotiable pay

The process:

  • Please send us a CV and cover letter
  • We will then follow-up with a short video interview with shortlisted applicants
  • Final applicants will be provided with a short paid task
