What will you learn?

The program aims to prepare top specialists in specific disciplines of physical geography. Graduates of the program should be prepared primarily for further scientific careers in academic and research institutions, but also for potential employment in the private sector. In the case of continuing scientific careers, long-term foreign experience in postdoc positions should be actively sought. Individual research groups at the Department of Geography cover the following research areas, where Ph.D. students are trained:

  • Geomorphology
  • Meteorology and climatology
  • Hydrology, limnology and glaciology
  • Pedology and pedogeography
  • Landscape ecology and biogeography
  • Palaeogeography, palaeoclimatology and palaeoecology

The connecting elements among the research areas are shared instrumentation and software equipment, professional seminars, annual Ph.D. candidates’ presentations and mutual Ph.D. candidates mentoring. Ph.D. students are motivated by the highly professional quality of research in a competitive, but collaborative open environment. The scientific performance of individual students is rewarded both financially and by, for example, participation in prestigious foreign conferences. 

Career opportunities 

The graduates of the Physical Geography Ph.D. program can apply the acquired qualification especially in academic and research institutions, state and ministry institutes, as well as in the private sector. They are able to perform independent scientific and research activities in the field of basic or applied research. In the broader sense, they are ready to carry out all activities related to scientific work that aims to address conceptual questions, scientific and organisational activities and also teaching and transferring knowledge.
