PhD in Medical Biophysics

General

Program Description

The subject of the study program within the concept of the complex biomedical fields is the issue of physical processes in a living organism, the influence of physical factors on living organisms and the use of modern physical methods in biomedical fields. Biophysics as an interdisciplinary field offers doctoral (Ph.D.) study to university graduates of various specializations (medicine, natural sciences, mathematics, physics, etc.).

The study program is carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Physiology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.


Description of verification and evaluation criteria

  • Duly completed master’s study program, i.e. submission of a certified copy of the university diploma or the nostrification of university education, by 30 September 2019.
  • Submission of the application form including all relevant enclosures, i.e. CV, professional reference, payment receipt of the admission fee by 30 April 2019
  • Submission of the dissertation project by 30 April 2019
  • Successful completion of the exam, which is based on appropriate knowledge in the scientific field chosen.

Entrance exams take the form of an interview on the topic of the Ph.D. Thesis, demonstrating the technical skills of the applicant for the doctoral study program and the ability to work with specialized foreign literature. The project is assessed by the expert committee.

Career Pathway

Doctoral (Ph.D.) study program Medical biophysics is an interdisciplinary branch making use the cooperation within the framework of basic science research in biology and medical clinical practice. Student education is focused on the relation between physics and medicine. Attention is paid to the knowledge of diagnostic and therapeutic methods, studies of physical processes on biological membranes, mathematical modeling of biological processes, biomechanics, biosignals, and also to the biophysical effects of electromagnetic radiation. The standard length of study is four (4) years.
