What will you learn?
The goal of the study is the preparation of highly-qualified specialists for research work in the field of Bioanalytical Chemistry in academic and company environments including accredited laboratories. The student will get necessary theoretical background and skills to realize his/her own research project in a research group under the guidance of a supervisor and be able to evaluate the obtained results. Modern instrumentation and experienced personnel at the Department of Biochemistry and at cooperating institutions create unique opportunities for student to be involved in numerous research activities concerning development of instrumental bioanalytical methods (separation methods with various types of detectors; biosensors combining different biological components with divergent detection principles) and immunochemistry and molecular biology based methods. Simultaneously, the student will be performing literature search using all resources of Masaryk University libraries. The research covers a wide spectrum of biological levels from whole organisms to tissues, cells and individual proteins. The palette of possibilities is broadened through long-term cooperation with several research institutions at home and abroad. Biochemistry is marked by its open and interdisciplinary character, the classical biochemical approaches being frequently combined with methodology from other disciplines such as microbiology, molecular biology, informatics, and biophysics. This increases graduates’ adaptability and their ability to apply acquired skills in working life. He/she will be ready to prepare the scientific presentations and publications using modern software tools.
Graduates of this doctoral degree program will be prepared for the work in the biochemical, pharmaceutical, medicinal and veterinary laboratories with the orientation both on the basic and applied research. They can work in the specialised accredited laboratories, that increase their possibilities of the perspective employment in Czech Republic and abroad.
They may continue their academic career at universities and research institutions both in the Czech Republic and abroad. They will be qualified for team member and leadership positions in scientific research and development at private firms and biochemical laboratories at a broad range of institutions specializing in human or veterinary medicine, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, and biotechnology. The professional specialization of the graduates is also compatible with further work in the field of environmental protection and with environmental movements and initiatives.
the admission procedure for this programme aims to search and select the best-motivated candidates. The entrance exam has the form of an online interview. a committee of three academic staff evaluates professional experience, the ability to communicate in English and the motivation and readiness of the candidates.
The committee verifies and evaluates the level of professional knowledge and prerequisites of the candidate for independent scientific work in the field of doctoral research (0-200 points) and English language skills (0-100 points). Before submitting the application, the candidate must consult with the potential supervisor on the focus of his/her doctoral thesis. Its topic is then specified during the first semester of study.More information about admission process for international applicants in general can be found here.
