|Doctoral Study in Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics|
Study Programme: Physics
Field of Study: Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics
The study is provided in Czech and English and is available in both full-time and part-time regimes. The standard length of the full-time (resp. part-time) study is 3 (resp. 5 years). All internal (full-time) students receive scholarship according to valid rules.
The student candidate must have completed M.S. degree in physics or related subject. Within the entrance interview he or she should show the ability to conduct independent scientific work and prove essential scientific knowledge in fundamental physics and mathematics, theoretical mechanics, electrodynamics, quantum physics and the special theory of relativity.
The topic of dissertation work will be realated to one of the following areas:
Within this study programme students may take rigiorous examinations to obtain the degree of Doctor Rerum Naturalium (RNDr.).
Aims of Study
The study programme has the purpose of raising qualified scientificic workers capable to carry out research at the level of the highest international standards in the field of theoretical physics and astrophysics with the use of effective computer methods. Substantial part of the study is concentrated on up-to-date problems of relativistic and particle physics and their astrophysical applications which are in line with the research program of the Institute and cooperating institutions.
The graduate gains a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills in the following areas:
Students of this programme have a wide spectrum of possibilities on how to assert themselves after the graduation. Following the most natural choice, they can become scienftific or pedagogical workers at colleges, universities and other institutions devoted to research in the field of theoretical physics and astrophysics. They may apply for postgraduate positions at cooperating institutions (University of Oxford and Gothenburg, CAMK in Warsaw, SISSA in Trieste) or other domestic or foreign universities. Furthermore, various industrial companies dealing with modeling of physical processes, or generaly companies related to industry, service businesses or the public services can represent another options.
