In 2019, PSA will select its third Lang Fellow. Named in honor of the late Norma J. Lang, this fellowship will grant a one-time payment of $10,000 to one early career researcher, who will be a Norma J. Lang Fellow for three years. Applications will be accepted from Postdoctoral Fellows, Pre-Tenure Faculty, and others (those not in traditional academic positions) who are members of the society and are within 10 years of completing their Ph.D. Applications from international members are welcome, but all application materials must be in English. Individuals must be employed by a university or other non-commercial entity and be doing research on algae. The purpose of this award is to provide "seed" money for projects, with the ultimate goal of increasing the likelihood of federal or other grant funding for the recipient. It is expected that the Fellow’s home institution will cover any indirect costs as an institutional match.
