PhD in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

The Doctoral Study Program (DSP) Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is a combined study program aimed to three areas of education (Informatics; Biology, Ecology and the Environment; General Medicine and dentistry). It is a multidisciplinary "doctoral degree" program between two universities. All subjects offered to students of this DSP are a combination of subjects focused on informatics - guaranteed by VŠB-TUO (50%), and subjects focused on biology and medical sciences - guaranteed by Palacky University in Olomouc (30% + 20%). Also the interuniversity ratio 50:50 appears to be optimal from perspective of the offer of subjects, staffing of the program, the profile of the graduate and the demand for graduates at labor market.

The aim of the study is to educate experts with interdisciplinary domain knowledge of natural and medical sciences and informatics with emphasis on practical experience and skills necessary for bioinformatics analysis of various types of large and small data sets, knowledge extraction from data and database systems. Graduates will be theoretically and experimentally prepared to be able to perform independent research work involving stages from the acquisition of large and small data sets (laboratory, clinical) to their professional bioinformatics and statistics analysis and interpretation. The study of this program allows direct output into practice. Graduates can find job positions in the filed of basic research as well as in the field of industrial research and experimental development, and can find positions not only in research institutions and universities of biomedical specialization but also in private pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies.
