The PhD program in Analytical Chemistry is focused on the determination of the chemical compositions, molecular structures, and molecular conformations as well as on the development of the corresponding experimental and computational techniques. The developed techniques and methodologies are applied for chemical analyses of macro and micro-objects of diverse origins, including objects of living nature, cells and sub-cellular structures, advanced technological materials, and objects of cultural heritage from archaeology and anthropology. For research and development, modern analytical methods like molecular and atomic spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, separation methods as well as advanced sensor techniques are used.
Graduates of the “Analytical Chemistry” PhD program should possess knowledge in all branches of analytical chemistry and should be able to apply the corresponding methods to solve various analytical tasks. With active knowledge of physical principals of analytical methods, knowledge how to use analytical instrumentation, a graduate of this PhD program could become a research scientist or ahead of a research or industrial analytical laboratory.
