Flygare Awards

The first Flygare Award Lectures were presented at the 70th ISMS meeting and are given out biannually to early career independent scientists who showcase outstanding contributions in molecular spectroscopy.

To be eligible, nominees must have received their PhD between five (November 14, 2018) and ten (November 15, 2013) years ago, must have presented at least one previous talk at the Symposium, and must be available to deliver a lecture during a plenary session in the year they apply. Candidates will be evaluated based on their independent contributions relative to the time that has elapsed since their PhD.

The next Flygare Award Lectures will be presented at the 77th ISMS meeting (in 2024).

Nominations must include a CV, a one-page summary of the nominee's independent research contributions, three letters of recommendation (submitted separately). Self-nominations are encouraged, but nominations by senior molecular spectroscopists are equally welcome.

For full consideration, all materials should be submitted by email to Birgit at coordinator@isms.illinois.edu by December 22, 2023.
