Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics
Study Programme: P1701 – Physics
Field of Study: Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics
Form of Study: Full-Time/Part-Time
Type of Study: Doctoral (Ph.D.)
Language: Czech, English
Standard Length of Study: 4/6 Years
Admissions: Entrance Interview

The applicant for doctoral study in Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics must have completed  M.S. degree in physics or related subject. Within the entrance interview he or she should demonstrate 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 these areas:

  • relativistic physics and astrophysics
  • theoretical nuclear and subnuclear physics
  • quantum theory of many-particle systems
  • applications of the above areas in astrophysics

The standard length of the full-time and part-time study is 4 and 6 years, respectively. All internal (full-time) students receive scholarship according to valid rules.   Within this programme students may also take rigiorous examinations to obtain the degree of Doctor Rerum Naturalium (RNDr.).

The graduates may assert themselves as scienftific workers at universities and other academic institutions, or employees in scientific institutions conducting research in the field of theoretical physics and industrial companies dealing with modeling of physical processes. Among other possibilities are also postgradual studies at domestic or foreign institutions (e.g. the institutions that cooperate with our Institute such as the University of Oxford and Gothenburg, CAMK in Warsaw, or SISSA in Trieste).
