Part time Doctors of Philosophy in Geology in Prague in Czech Republic. A graduate of the Applied Geology Ph.D. program has acquired deep knowledge in the field of engineering geology focused on theoretical and experimental soil and rock mechanics as well as geotechnical mathematical modelling, in the field of hydrogeology focused on the use and protection of ground water resources, in the field of applied geophysics with special interest on mathematical models of physical fields, in the field of economic geology focused on the genesis of raw mineral material deposits including prospecting, exploration and evaluation as well as the problems of the reclamation of abandoned mines, and in the field of environmental geology and geochemistry. Scholarship 50 000 Kč This number was calculated by automatic currency conversion using exchange rate for EUR: 27.055 Branch characteristic Applied geology with specializations of geology of mineral deposits, engineering geology, hydrogeology, applied geophysics, environmental geology and geochemistry is focused on study and the use of the rock environment and its protection. ENGINEERING GEOLOGY Engineering geology applies the geological knowledge in design and construction in all branches of civil engineering, in mining and in urban planning. It is an interdisciplinary field in between the science and technology. Using technical or rather mathematical methods, the knowledge gained by geology is applied in analyzing geodynamic processes and the interaction between the rock and civil engineering structures. HYDROGEOLOGY Hydrogeology is a scientific field engaged in groundwaters, their origin, conditions of incidence, laws of movement, their regimes, physical and chemical properties, their interaction with rocks, surface water and atmosphere. Hydrogeology ranges among applied geological branches and has closest relation to engineering geology. Modern hydrogeology has the character of a cross-border scientific discipline at the margin between geology, hydraulics, hydrology, chemistry and several technological disciplines (water management, civil engineering, chemical technology of water treatment etc.).A necessary method of modern hydrogeology is the development and use of mathematical models simulating natural processes as well as artificial interventions in the regime of waters both in saturated and unsaturated zones. The contents of the hydrogeology of today is moving from simple searching for water resources to the determination of optimum conditions of their utilization and protection. Hydrogeology plays an irreplacable role in the field of the protection of the living environment, in research and remediation of contaminated soils, rocks and groundwater. APPLIED GEOPHYSICS Applied geophysics studies physical fields and their utilization in solving geological problems. The main interest is in the upper part of the Earth s crust in the depth range of the first meters to first kilometers. The basic methods of applied geophysics are: gravity methods, magnetic methods, seismic methods, geoelectrical methods, radioactivity methods, geothermal methods and well logging. Geophysical methods are applied for investigation and exploration of mineral deposits, building materials, water resources, energy resources and are significant in monitoring and protection of natural environment.

STRATIGRAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL GEOLOGY Follows the studies of geological processes in the history of the Earth with the emphasis on organic and inorganic features. It is employed in broad range of geological sciences (including the reconstruction of geological environment in the past with the implications for the recent). The discipline deals with lithostratigraphy, biostratigraphy and chronostratigraphy especially in the regional studies and correlation. It uses methods of the facies analysis as well as basin analysis in the paleogeographic reconstruction. It applies paleontological methods for the paleoecology, ecostratigraphy and quantitative stratigraphy, climatic stratigraphy and eventstratigraphy. The discipline uses geochronological methods radiometric dating and deals with the stratigraphical position of metamorphic and magmatic rocks. It employs the methods of detail studies of geological sections and deals with the research of Quaternary sediments. STRUCTURAL GEOLOGY In order to study the geological features (structures) of different scales it follows the scale sequences from the structures of mineral grains and rocks, outcrop structures ad structures expressed in the geological maps, global lithospheric structures and planetary structures. The emphasis of the structural geological studies is on the relationships among the structures and methods of their studies (deformation or strain analysis, methods of physical and mathematical models . The discipline provides a complex overview and applications of structural research in geological sciences using contemporaneous and up to date state of art of problems and methods. PALEOBOTANY The discipline deals with the studies of plants of the past geological times, plant evolution from the oldest forms of life in early Precambrian up to Cenozoic. It studies morphology and anatomy of the plant organs, carries out the reconstruction of fossil plants and whole plant assemblages. It studies the relationships of plant evolution and the environment. It formulates paleoclimatic and paleogeographic conclusions that are used in the geological studies (predominantly in the coal and oil geology). ZOOPALEONTOLOGY The study of evolution animals on the Earth from the earliest stages to the contemporaneous times, using the methods of morphology, anatomy and paleoecology. It attempts to reconstruct individual species and whole fossil assemblages. The results are used for biostratigraphy and evaluation of the evolution of an environment in geological past.
