This branch is the study of the biological functions of animal and human organisms. Using wide possibilities of modern experimental methods of molecular biology, chemistry, physics and some special physiological techniques, cellular, organ, and organismic aspects are studied.
Description of verification and evaluation criteria
The entrance exam is a one-round in the form of an interview. Based on a written request submitted electronically together with the application but no later than by 19 May 2019, the Dean may permit the entrance examination to take place via information and communication technology, but only for serious and documented reasons such as health or study abroad.
During the entrance examination, the candidate must demonstrate the technical and linguistic skills to study the given program, along with attributes necessary for scientific work. The examination is graded with a maximum of 100 points, of which 30 points are awarded as a bonus for giving a more specific idea of the study content and planned dissertation work in the voluntary application appendix, including the dissertation topic, a brief annotation, the anticipated supervising department and the consent of a specific supervisor to supervise such doctoral project.
Conditions for admission
Admission to Doctoral studies is conditioned by the successful completion of a Master's study program.
Confirmation date (of entrance exam)
from: 17.06.2019 until: 28.06.2019
Alternative date (of entrance exam)
from: 08.07.2019 until: 19.07.2019

Such a request, along with documentation that the conditions have been met, must be submitted (but not electronically) by 19 May 2019.
A graduate of the doctoral study program in Animal Physiology is ready for independent scientific-research work. He/she has good theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a wide range of biological disciplines affecting the physiological and biochemical aspects of the relevant studied problems at the cell, organ and organism levels, and is able to adequately present the experimental findings obtained. Graduates are capable of working in basic and applied research both in national and international scientific institutions, including teaching posts in medical, science and agriculture universities.
