The objective is to provide to talented Master's degree holders the possibility to continue their studies in the Doctor's degree program Physics in such specializations that have excellent quality and traditions at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of MU and at cooperating institutions, mainly various institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences. During his/her doctoral studies the student participates in research as a member of a research team, he/she usually partakes in objective financed research and is led in such a way as to become an independent researcher on concluding the doctoral program. Necessary conditions include the publication activity in prestigious international journals, active participation in meetings of scientific peers and usually a long-term stay abroad. This guarantees the ability to communicate with international research partners in English resp. other languages. Our aim is to educate the students so that they are able to independently work at universities and research institutes in the Czech Republic as well as anywhere else in the world.
