PhD Programs in Zoology in Prague in Czech Republic. Ph.D. programme in zoology is aimed at graduate university students deeply interested in science of zoology and capable of independent research in a particular zoological discipline. The study is centred with a Ph.D. project addressing the current issues of the discipline and consistent both in conceptual and methodological respects. The study is intended to promote skills in independent research, in establishing its contextual setting and producing relevant research outcomes, in particular by publishing. A graduate is able to conduct research, publish its results in international journals and teach in university courses. He/she can find a position in research and academic institutions in zoology and related disciplines as well as in organizations of conservation biology, in museums, zoos and/or in applied research. Scholarship 50 000 Kč This number was calculated by automatic currency conversion using exchange rate for EUR: 27.055 Branch characteristic The program is opened to students who finished the graduate study (master, MSc., mgr.) in biology and wish to continue their professional career in zoology. The participants are instructed in conceptual, methodical and technical issues of particular disciplines of zoology and trained in practical invesigation of particular scientific problems. The PhD study is centered with the PhD project which concept and actual performance is largerly subjected to student´s personal initiative and skills. A broad spectrum of problems in animal systematics, phylogenetics, ecology and behavioral biology can be studied typically with a routine application of various modern methods and approaches (molecular phylogenetics and phylogeography, histochemical analyses, experimental morphology and evo-devo, quantiative behavioral analyses, neuroethology, acoustic biology etc.) combined with extensive field investigation, comparative studies and laboratory analyses. Almost all major groups of animals are covered, typically Acarina, Aranea, Psedoscorpionea, Mollusca, Heteroptera, Coleoptera, Diptera and several other groups of insects (including fossils) and all major clades of vertebrates (including fossils) as well.
