Program Description

PhD in Biophysics

Palacky University Faculty of Science

The study provides wide knowledge of molecular mechanisms and experimental methods of biophysical processes in general and in plant physiology, bioenergetics and photosynthesis in particular. The most important experimental methods are the non-destructive luminescence, optical and gasometrical methods supported by biochemical analytical and activity measurements. The dissertation themes include studies of molecular and organ mechanisms of photosynthesis, abiotic (high temperature and oxidative stress) and biotic (pathogenesis) plant stresses, signalling pathways and hormonal effects, systemic plant reactions and senescence, and a development of new experimental methods, mathematical models of photosynthetic on molecular and tissue level.

Admission procedure

Applicants for Ph.D. studies should hold a M.Sc. degree in the relevant field of study and show that they are able to undertake the study successfully. The decision is made by Admission Committee nominated by the Dean of the Faculty based on study record transcripts and personal recommendations. Selected candidates may be invited for an interview.

Additional individual applications for remaining vacant themes from the list can be negotiated throughout the year.
