Chelsea Specht honored with Prytanean Faculty Award

September 11, 2008

Chelsea Specht, an assistant professor in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, was named the winner of the 2008 Prytanean Faculty Award, given annually by the women’s honor organization founded on the Berkeley campus in 1901.

The award, which comes with a financial grant of $25,000, goes to an outstanding woman junior-faculty member who “has demonstrated scholarly achievement, a record as a distinguished teacher, and success as a role model for students at UC Berkeley.”

Specht, a former Fulbright Research and National Science Foundation fellow, specializes in the study of the processes and patterns involved in the evolution and diversification of plants.
