The Security and Political Economy (SPEC) Lab, based in the University of Southern California, conducts interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research on issues at the intersection of climate change, security, and economic development. Faculty and doctoral students collaborate with undergraduate students as they develop data science and other research skills and apply them directly to the policy challenges facing national governments and international institutions.


The SPEC Lab has opened applications for RA positions starting in the Fall of 2024 as well as Summer 2024 positions on our Everyday Respect team. Click the button below to learn more information!
