The Physical Chemistry doctoral degree study program educates students and pushes them to gain the highest degree of knowledge in their selected fields. This program prepares students for independent work in the field. Students focus on physical chemistry. Students in this department research thermodynamics and kinetics, processes in amorphous materials, heterogeneous catalytic processes or more generally the homogeneous and heterogeneous systems reaction kinetics, and adsorption processes. This study program focuses on theoretical and experimental research and applies progressive methods, and uses modern methods of mathematical simulation while building on experimental data. Ph.D. students must pass exams in at least three courses (selected from 17 offered) as well as pass the English language exam. Ph.D. students are able to pass an unlimited number of optional subjects offered by other Doctoral study programs at the University of Pardubice or by fellow research institutes of the Academy of Science or abroad (i.e. Heyrovsky Institute of the Physical Chemistry, NIMS Tsukuba Japan). Graduates complete their studies when they successfully pass their Ph.D. oral examination and dissertation thesis defense. Graduates of this program work as independent senior researchers in the private or public sector and work as research or production team leaders.
