The main theoretical aim is the formulation of generally valid rules, both at the cellular and organic level, as well as at the human, individual level. The biophysical and engineering methodological approach for solving tasks is supported by high-level knowledge of biological character. The research takes place at various distinct levels ranging from micro-biomechanics (cellular level) to living macro systems (e.g. biomechanics of humans). It is possible to encounter biomechanic applications in a wide range of sciences and professional activities. Biomechanics in this form can be used not only in the area of basic research, but also in a wide range of professional activities such as rehabilitation medicine, ergonomics, forensic and biomedicine engineering, sports, etc. The training centre of the Charles University and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic provides interdisciplinary education in the PhD degree study programmes in a broad scope, and within particular specializations. Students´ curricula are highly individualized according to the demands of the chosen issue and specialization. During the studies great emphasis is placed upon students' independent research activity within the context of the teamwork of the training centre. Experimental facilities include laboratories of particular training workplaces.

Previous professional activity 3. The relation of the project topic to the specialization of the supervisor and his/her research projects 4. The relation to the overall strategy of the scientific and research development at the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport, Charles University 5. The form of the applicant’s project presentation Each member of the examining committee grades paragraphs 1, 3, 4 and 5 on a scale of points – 0 to 10 points for each item, item 2 is evaluated on a scale of 0 to 20 points. The maximum number of points awarded by one examiner is 60 points. The arithmetic mean is calculated on the basis of the point evaluation of each member of the examining board. The result is rounded to the nearest whole number – for values from 0.0 to 0.49 in the downward direction to the nearest whole number. For values from 0.50 to 0.99 in the upward direction to the nearest whole number. The ranking of applicants is decided based on the total number of points. The dean of the faculty determines the point limit for admission.
