    The most important thing in the e-mail is to explain to the professor why the PhD position which on some aspect exactly fit with your CV. – scaaahu Apr 3 '15 at 7:45

Answer the 5 W's: Who, What, Where, When, and Why.

Honestly my thought is skip the full introduction in the email. Instead, state that you are a phd student, and you believe the position fit in with your cv and you wish to have a in person meeting/or phone meeting to discuss this. Keep the email short and sweet. Once you meet the professor, discuss with him.

    or her... I would prefer to have a very short version of who the applicant is and the salient points of their CV in the email, so that I can assess whether to offer a phone meeting or schedule a face-2-face meeting. – Debora Weber-Wulff Apr 3 '15 at 21:55
