View PhD Programs in Biology in Czech Republic 2019

Requirements for the PhD program often involve the student having already obtained a Master’s degree. Additionally, a thesis or dissertation primarily consisting of original academic research must be submitted. In some countries, this work may even need to be defended in front of a panel.

For you to have the best understanding of living things and their behavior, you need a PhD in biology. The PhD in Biology will give students knowledge of research in the areas of Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Evolution and Computational Biology.

Welcome to Prague, welcome to the Faculty of Science!

Faculty of Science, Charles University belongs to the leading research institutions in the Czech Republic. We are proud of our rich history and the number of famous scientists who have worked here (including the Nobel prize laureates Einstein and Heyrovsky). The members of our research groups are authors or co-authors of hundreds of publications in the most prestigious journals including Nature and Science. Do you want to contribute to new discoveries in science? Join us in the STARS program!

prof. RNDr. Jiri Zima, CSc., Dean

What do we offer within the STARS program?

All PhD students receive a state-guaranteed scholarship of 10.500,- Czech crowns per month in their first year of study; the scholarship increases slightly (10.500,- + additional 2.000,- once the doctor examination is successfully passed) over the course of 4 years for which it is granted. In addition to the state scholarship, the STARS program students will also be granted the STARS-scholarship of at least 10.000 CZK per month. The STARS-scholarship is guaranteed for 4-year study period for those students, who will obtain grade "A" (excellent) in a regular each-year evaluation.... [-]

A specialist in the area of life's origins and evolution. The student will receive a broad theoretical and methodical training oriented towards epistemology and theory in Biosciences. This erudition is supplemented by student's special training in some particular area(s) of biology - thereby qualifying her/him for the work in a broad spectrum of research, e.g. theoretical biology, mathematical biology and modeling, history of science, and last but not least, standard experimental biology.

The subjects applied specific molecular approaches in the detailed exploration of the heredity and variability of organisms the uncovering of the structural and functional relations between information macromolecules (nucleic acids and proteins) as the basis of the existence and manifestation/expression of living matter at all levels of complexity of its organization. It is concerned with the structure and function of genes, the biosynthesis of proteins as gene products – gene expression and its regulation. Classical and molecular biological approaches are applied to all biological objects in normal and pathological states with the aim of discovering, understanding and purposefully modifying the mechanisms of all their manifestations, including the viral level and gene therapy....

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 the practical investigation of particular scientific problems. The Ph.D. study is centered with the Ph.D. project which concept and actual performance are largely 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, quantitative 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. For current examples consult a list of the past and recent projects undertaken in the frame of the Ph.D. Program in Zoology (at the web page of the Program: web.natur.cuni.cz/zoologie).... [-]

Classical and molecular biological approaches are applied to all biological objects in normal and pathological states with the aim of discovering, understanding and purposefully modifying the mechanisms of all their manifestations, including the viral level and gene therapy. Their subject of study and methods mean that these disciplines have an impact on practically all the scientific and research fields of biology and biomedicine and have an influence on the applied spheres of medicine (congenital and infectious diseases, vaccines, new drugs), agriculture (transgenic organisms and the improvement plants and animals), ecology (the relationship between organisms and the environment, control of pollution of the environment and non-traditional processing of wastes) and biotechnologies based primarily on the procedures of genetic engineering and genetic manipulation....

Plant physiology studies vital processes in plant organisms deals with intrinsic relationships within the plant body as well as interactions with the environment. At present, the traditional name „physiology“ de facto covers complex studies of plant biology including genetic, biochemical and ecological problems. It aims to elucidate coherence between structure and function at the level of the whole organism, organs, tissues, and cells. It makes use of the methods of biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, anatomy, and ecology. Plant physiology contributes to the knowledge of general biology of living organisms including biomedical aspects.
