Hi Laura,

First, select a suitable view point by setting the option ViewPoint 
(also accessible via the menu Input => "3D ViewPoint Selector...", 
shift+ctrl+V on MS Windows).

Then, tweak the values of the option AxesEdge. Finally, remove the frame 
box if you wish.

For example:

Plot3D[Sin[x]^2*Cos[y^2], {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0, 2*Pi},
    AxesEdge -> {{-1, -1}, {-1, -1}, {-1, -1}}, Boxed -> False,
    ViewPoint -> {3.11, 1.171, 1.225}, ImageSize -> 400];

Best regards,
Jean-Marc
