Research experience in behavioral genetics

We are looking for extremely responsible undergraduates who are excited about science to participate in a large-scale research project on fruit fly learning behavior. The project focuses on understanding the genes and brain regions that cause differences in learning ability in natural fly populations. Students are responsible for maintaining and rearing flies; conducting experiments; general lab tasks; and participating in weekly meetings where we discuss papers from the primary literature. The position is unpaid but could lead to funding opportunities and/or research credit in the future.

To apply, please send a resume (informal is fine) and a short description of your interest in the project and availability to jsaltz@usc.edu
