We accept applications for PhD projects in Surface Science, Interface Physics, Nanostructures & Nanomaterials.
The study program covers all aspects of surface physics and thin film technology. It is based on knowledge of physical and chemical properties of solid state surfaces and interfaces and of physical processes related. Studies include problems of basic research in material science and nanophysics, study of surface structures and processes at atomic level, surface catalysis as well as borderline disiplines such as fuel cell technology. Experimental approach is in close relation with theoretical study of problems. The program prepares professionals with a broad foundation in physics, with rich experience in advanced surface experimental techniques and with deep knowledge of surface physics and chemistry.
Applications collected through this website will be used to match candidates with PhD advisors and to determine project funding. All selected candidates will have to pass through the regular admission procedure of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. All candidates admitted for PhD will be students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University.
PhD projects will be carried out at one of the collaborating institutions in Prague, Czechia:
- Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics (MFF CUNI): Department of Surface and Plasma Science
- Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IP CAS)
- J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IPC CAS)
- Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IPE CAS)
