Study PhD science next to the river Elbe

Jan Evangelista Purkyně UniversityThe University in Ústí nad Labem (UJEP) is named after the famous Czech inventor Jan Evangelista Purkyně (1787–1869) who was one of the most prominent natural scientists of his time. He invented the term protoplasm that denotes the fluid substance in cells. Whether you’ve just finished your secondary school or you’re already a university student who wants to spend a few terms abroad, UJEP invites you to their North Bohemian town located in the charming valley of the river Elbe that creates an ideal base to study natural sciences.

UJEP’s Faculty of Science is a modern institution providing education in natural sciences. It cooperates with numerous partners as well as the private sector, preparing its students for the current job market as the graduates can find employment in the EU institutions, nature conservation, land-use planning, research institutes and other areas.

Completely in English, UJEP currently offers three 4-year long PhD study programmes. You can go for Geographies of Transformation if you’re interested in the changes of geographical systems that address socio-environmental development in various contexts. You can then become an expert in strategic, regional and environmental planning.

If you’re rather a computer geek, choose Computer Modelling in Science and Technology. You’ll be solving challenging computational problems using latest computer technologies while deepening your knowledge in mathematics, physics and computational methods. Your doctoral dissertation should focus on computer modelling.

Alternatively, you can try Applied Nanotechnology if you’ve obtained your master’s degree in the same field. You’ll learn about the latest research in nanotechnologies and material sciences in general. Study topics include things such as nanomaterial preparation by physical or chemical techniques, bio nanotechnologies and computer-designed nanomaterials. The aim of this programme is to prepare you for techniques applicable in the industry and research laboratories as well.
