Education and training

Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment provides university education in the fields of Chemistry and Biology within all three levels of higher education, i.e. bachelor (BSc), master (MSc) and doctoral (PhD).

Doctoral study fields

  • Environmental chemistry
  • Ecotoxicology

Master studies

  • Environmental chemistry
  • General biology, specialization in Ecotoxicology
  • Mathematical biology

Bachelor studies

  • General biology, specialization in Ecotoxicolog
  • Mathematical biology

Pc schoolroomStudies are open to applicants interested in interdisciplinary studies of chemistry, biology, mathematics and statistics. Studies in Environmental chemistry and Ecotoxicology are focused on issues of environmental stress and protection. Mathematical biology studies include management and analyses of biological, environmental and medical data.

Each year, about 30 bachelor students and 30 master students successfuly complete their studies at the Centre. Since 1994, more 60 PhD students finished and successfully defended their theses. Quality of the education is acknowledged by number of student awards at various levels including dean's and rector's awards; national competitions of master students (Barbora Jedličková 2008); best student presentations at national and international conferences including e.g. SETAC Europe (best poster; Jiří Kohoutek in 2008), DIOXIN (best student presentations, Petr Kukučka in 2010) or EuCheMS mobility and carreer development scholarships (best student presentations; Romana Kurková and Petr Kukučka in 2010, Jitka Bečanová and Jan Kuta in 2011).

Foreign student

Students use quality lecture, seminary and computer rooms and laboratories for practical exercises. Student research projects (theses) form an important part of the studies and correspond to major research projects and reflect other applied activities of the Centre.

International students and professors working in the Centre (from UK, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and others) as well as existing international cooperations provide a stimulating study environment and offer a range of student mobility opportunities including European programmes such as ERASMUS and others.
