Studies are focused on the knowledge of the biological processes occurring in the microorganisms at the molecular, cellular and ecosystems level of organizations. Graduates are accomplished in the skill of independent research and scientific work in microbiology.


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.

Career Prospect

Ph.D. graduates in microbiology are educated for individual scientific work in the field of microbiology. They gain comprehensive knowledge of cellular and molecular biology of bacteria and fungi at the most recent level and are experienced in the methods of microbiology, biochemistry, molecular genetics, analytical chemistry, and biophysics. Graduates are prepared to creatively solve the problems of basic and applied research in medical, environmental, industrial and biotechnological microbiology. Ph.D. graduates in microbiology can find positions in scientific institutes, at universities oriented on research and education in microbiology, or in organizations engaged, for instance, in clinical diagnostics, food production, pharmacy, bioremediation, or the water services sector.
