The Animal Physiology doctoral study program offers postgraduate courses to graduates in biology and related fields. Students are taught in conceptual, methodological and technical areas of particular disciplines of physiology and at the same time led to conduct independent research work and address comprehensive scientific problems. The selection of dissertation topics and the methodological approach used are typically based on scientific projects currently funded and underway. The cornerstone of every dissertation is always a clearly formulated initial scientific hypothesis. The progress of work is regularly discussed with a supervisor and monitored in annual evaluations.
Candidates successfully completing the doctoral program become highly qualified specialists in their chosen field of physiology, capable of independent research with a wide range of options to conduct research in their area of specialization. Graduates are typically hired by universities, academic and research institutions, commercial companies, and health care or pharmaceutical facilities where they can engage in various aspects of basic or applied biomedical research. Graduates also often find employment in various management positions or in government.
General information for those interested in the doctoral study program is available on the CU Faculty of Science website under Studies ( Applying to the doctoral program), which is where you will also find the latest news regarding this program ( Doctoral program news).
Students in the Animal Physiology doctoral program can attend lectures primarily intended for advanced students in the master’s study program. A list of these lectures can be found in the master’s study program along with links to the study information system, which contains syllabi and all other information. A list of recommended courses can also be found right on the DSPB website (Animal Physiology – courses). You also might draw inspiration from the Faculty database.
