Ph.D.Nuclear Chemistry

Czech Technical University in Prague - Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering

4-year programme focused on radiation chemistry; nuclear methods in analysis, in chemical research, in research into and protection of the environment on radiopharmaceutical chemistry, separation chemistry, and on the study and use of radiation chemical processes in science, research, and practice

Graduate profile

PhD study significantly deepens the education gained during Master study in advanced and specialized disciplines. The common part of the graduate's profile entails working knowledge of some broad area of modern mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. advanced functional analysis, nonlinear partial differential equations, quantum optics, solid state physics, nuclear chemistry) as well as some particular field of its application (e.g. lasers, particle physics, material science, modern methods of computer science, environmental protection). This common background is further specialized in collaboration with thesis advisors towards the individual needs of the students based on the thematic areas of their doctoral theses. The quality of the educational experience is significantly improved by the fact that doctoral students throughout their studies work in research teams, either directly at the university or at cooperating research institutions, particularly at the institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic; this often entails becoming a part of a large transnational team based e.g. in CERN. Students often use the opportunity to pursue doctoral study under dual supervision (a.k.a. double degree) together with a foreign partner university (e.g. from France or Germany). Students are encouraged to present their results at international conferences and publish in scientific journals. Established publication record is an indispensible condition for the successful completion of the study. Graduates have sufficient experience to start a successful career in either basic or applied research. Some of them successfully apply for postdoctoral scholarships at Czech or foreign universities; others find a job at institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic or in commercial enterprises, in particular in software, computer and modern technology-oriented companies.
