Présentation établissement et labo d'accueil

Faculty of Science, Charles University

The Faculty of Science was established in 1920 as the fifth faculty of Charles University. It currently has 29 departments, 3 museums and a large Botanical Garden where the Study Department and some students’ facilities are located.

Nowadays the faculty is academically and organizationally divided into four sections: biological, geographical, geological and chemical. In addition to these sections the faculty has several specialized teaching and research centres, including interdisciplinary institutions such as the Institute for Environmental Studies. All parts of the faculty are active in both teaching and research.

The main mission of the Faculty of Science is to create highly qualified experts in biology, chemistry, geography, geology and in other interdisciplinary fields. Its scientific and research effort aims to solve key problems concerned with the development of human society. Some of the priority long-term subjects are human health, the study of the function and prediction of the development of ecosystems and the biosphere, and the development of environmentally-friendly materials based on the utilization of renewable resources.

The Department of Social Geography and Regional Development is one of four geography departments in the Faculty of Science at Charles University. It is the top human geography department in Czechia and Central Europe as a whole. Its members are the principal investigators of research grants funded by the Czech Science Foundation and the Charles University Science Foundation, and they are involved in international research grants. Members of the Department also regularly publish abroad, serve on the editorial boards of international academic journals, and participate in major international scientific associations.

The QS World University Ranking by Subject ranked the School of Geography at Charles University’s Faculty of Science among the top one hundred geography schools/departments in the world. 

PhD students are welcome to participate in most of the activities of the Department and the Department supports those who are active—not only financially. We try to do our best to provide students with a friendly, inspiring, and motivating environment for conducting their research.

Profil du candidat

Potential PhD candidate is expected to have a basic knowledge of both geography and epidemiology. The subject of the PhD thesis can be slightly changed after the discussion and agreement with the supervisor.
