Undergraduate Science Journal Seeks Staff!

Journal of Young Investigators is seeking motivated students to join our staff!

With the return of the academic year often comes an increase in submissions for JYI, and we expect this year to be no different. Each summer, as students graduate and leave JYI, we look for new, enthusiastic staff members to fill their roles. This fall we are looking forward to the new submissions that have been written and polished during the summer, but we need more staff members to help! We have also been in contact with a very large scientific writing contest in Europe, and we plan to publish many of those papers as well. This is where you come in:
