PhD in Botany

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time Part time 4 years September 2017 Czech Republic Prague + 1 more

A graduate of the Ph.D. program in Botany is qualified to do independent research in botany and plant ecology (including mycology). [+]

Best PhD Programs in Botany in Czech Republic 2017. The field of botany covers all plant organismal sciences including mycology. Students typically specialize in one of the following fields: (i) systematics, distribution and ecology of non-vascular plants (including fungi), (ii) biosystematics/experimental taxonomy, microevolution, phylogenetics a distribution of vascular plants, or (iii) plant ecology, vegetation science and landscape ecology (including paleoecology). The study encompasses training in modern methodological approaches, data analysis and synthesis, and stresses participation in the scientific community, including the ability to present one's own results. Work on the PhD. project of the student is the core of the study. More information is available at the website of the Programme Steering Committee Description of the entrance examination and evaluation criteria The entrance examination has one round and is held as an interview. In exceptional cases, requested in writing by 30 April 2017, the dean can permit entrance examinations to take place via information and communication technology. During the entrance examination the candidate must demonstrate technical and linguistic skills to study the given field along with attributes necessary for scientific work. The entrance examination also takes into account the interest of the candidate in pursuing specific doctoral work with a particular supervisor and the candidate’s ability to handle this topic. The maximum score of the examination is 100 points. Conditions for admission Submission of a properly completed application, including prescribed appendices, and payment of the application fee by 30 April 2017. Completion of a master’s program of study at a university documented by a notarized copy of a diploma or certificate of equivalence of a foreign university education, or an original confirmation of completion of the required education by 30 September 2017. The requirement of submitting a notarized copy of a diploma does not apply to master’s graduates of Charles University. Applicants whose request for recognition of a foreign education has not been decided upon by 30 September 2017 may submit the required document by 21 October 2017. Passing grade on the entrance examination All applicants scoring at least 50 points on the entrance examination will be admitted for study. Information on the exercise of graduates A graduate of the Ph.D. program in Botany is qualified to do independent research in botany and plant ecology (including mycology). This includes the identification and analysis of key research questions, the design of experimental/data collection techniques and analytical tools for handling them, up to the final presentation of results. The study program also includes essential theoretical concepts on which the discipline is based, and methodological issues used in data collection and analysis. The graduate has a command of English sufficient to do research at international research institutions outside the Czech Republic. [-]

PhD in Plant Anatomy and Physiology

Charles University Faculty of Science
Campus Full time Part time 4 years September 2017 Czech Republic Prague + 1 more

A graduate has general knowledge about the current state of experimental plant biology, the focus of which lies in plant life functions and structures, signal and regulatory mechanisms of physiological processes from molecular, cell and organ levels to the level of a plant as a complex entirety in relation to environmental factors including plant interactions with organisms. [+]

Plant physiology studies vital processes in plant organisms, deals with intrinsic relationships within 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 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.

They are capable of using this knowledge in basic or applied research oriented both toward agriculture, e.g. breeding research, plant production and protection, or biomedical research - pharmacy or medicine. They are well informed in current field advances, capable of designing original research projects, and can independently accomplish plant biology research with the use of many approaches from bioinformatics to microscopy and ecological physiology.
