Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name:

I appreciate you taking the time to speak to me about the internship position available at the Marine Research Station. I am excited about the opportunity to intern with such a well-regarded organisation.

The internship, as you presented it, seems to be an excellent match for my skills and interests. I am confident that my coursework in oceanography will enable me to be a productive member of team. In addition to my enthusiasm, I will bring to the position a willingness to learn, both about the Research Station and the oceanography field.

I appreciate the time you took to interview me. I am very interested in working for you and look forward to hearing from you. If I can provide you with additional information, please let me know.

Thank you for your consideration.
