USC Undergraduate Science Journal

The USC Undergraduate Science Journal (USJ) is a student run online publication that serves to highlight research projects here at the University, with an emphasis on research conducted by undergraduate students. We also cover research done by USC faculty and graduate students. Our goal is to promote scientific literacy by showcasing the pioneering research done at USC in way that is engaging and accessible to the entire USC community. We cover a broad range of the sciences, including the life sciences, physical sciences, behavioral sciences, public health, and engineering. Our inaugural issue is now online so feel free to visit our website at!

If you're interested in becoming part of the USJ team next year, please email us at for more information and to receive an application.

Summer Research Opportunity in Behavioral and Evolutionary Genetics

I am a PhD student looking to hire 1-2 undergraduates who are interested in animal behavior, neuroscience and/or evolutionary genetics. Undergraduates will work on several projects in these areas including the development of aggressive behavior and the neurobiology of learning.

We study the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster; undergraduates will be involved in rearing flies and measuring their aggressiveness and/or learning capabilities. There may also be opportunities to learn basic techniques in molecular biology. Students will read and discuss relevant papers from the scientific literature, and are also encouraged to participate in other Nuzhdin lab and MCB intellectual activities.

I work best with students who are independent, self-motivated, and interested in basic conceptual research. No prior coursework or research experience is necessary. You can choose a salary ($3000 for the summer if you work full time) or course credit. Students who work during the summer will likely to be able to continue working during the school year. We always have lots to do!
