Ph.D. Economics (English)
The study branch Economics focuses on training scientists and researchers who want to gain or deepen their existing, knowledge and skills in the areas of macroeconomics and microeconomics. In the field of macroeconomics, the focus is on the issues of analysis, and the influence of the institutional environment on macroeconomic management decision making in companies. In microeconomics, both the theory of prices and competition are the subjects of study, and secondly, the analysis of the impact of microeconomic (structural) policies on the corporate sphere.The students’ field of study, in addition to the compulsory and optional subjects, involves scientific and research work, based on the independent study of Czech and foreign literature, which gives the most up to date information in the field. Therefore, the student is required to engage in his/her own publication activity during the course of study. Studies are completed by the State Doctoral Examination and the defense of the Doctoral dissertation.It is expected that graduates will work in the fields of science and research, as well as in teaching (especially in universities). They will also work in the strategic and analytical departments of financial and non-financial companies.The structure of the programme is as follows:Block A: Subjects common to the whole school:...

The aim of the study is to prepare students for scientific research work at the level corresponding to the current requirements of science. In the new study, concept integrates physical anthropology, including genetics, ecology, and ethology, the sociocultural anthropology in a holistic approach to the study of humans and populations. The task of teaching, in general, is to learn the theoretical foundations of the field and mastering the techniques and methodology of scientific research work.
In physical anthropology, the methods include somatometry, osteometry, anthropological somatotopy, dermatoglyphic, basics of rent genometry and other morphological and morphometric approaches, including the newly introduced 3D non-contact techniques. Methods of molecular genetics entail PCR in situ hybridization, DNA sequencing, and restriction analysis methods. Research programs of the training center focused on tracking postnatal growth and development of children in normal and pathological, research on nutrition and obesity, the study of morphological variability in populations, the impact of environmental factors on the ontogenetic development of man, watching craniofacial growth of normal and abnormal congenital defects, evaluation dermatoglyphic characteristics particularly in relation to developmental disorders and to analyze the patterns of human behavior....

The study field of mathematical analysis is focused on the studium of basic and advanced parts of the mathematical analysis. It is a subdiscipline of mathematics whose primary goal is the description of natural or social processes which involve a certain form of dynamic progress, mostly a motion or a change. The basic principles of mathematical analysis consist of all forms of limiting processes. The top education in mathematical analysis consists of the ability to solve differential equations of all types.
The program does not contain specializations.

The doctoral study program “Theology”, the branch of study “Hussite theology” with a standard length of study of four years prepares students for independent scientific research and independent creative activities in the area of theology. The branch of study enables students to specialize according to his or her individual study plan. The branch of study provides knowledge of hermeneutical approaches and applies them in the contemporary theological discourse and also in the dialogue with confessional approaches of other theological systems. The subject of the studies is a theological compendium interpreted in the course of the Hussite theology. The goal of the studies is a scientific preparation of first-rate experts that are capable of independent scientific work in the area of theology. The branch is simultaneously oriented to awareness of the fact that from the very beginning there is an effort to new understanding and new interpretation of fundamental theological notions. Thereby the branch is in context with other concepts that were overcoming a metaphysical conception of the world. It deals with the key questions of the Christian belief and Christ present in this world. Students of the branch have got an opportunity to learn how the questions are practically manifested in the current social science of the church as well....

Biomechanics is an interdisciplinary field of science which, based on the knowledge of anatomy and biochemistry, deals with the mechanical structure and mechanical behavior of living systems and their mutual mechanical interactions. A biophysical and engineering methodological approach to task solving is supported there by a great degree of knowledge of biological nature. Research is carried out at various levels of distinction, ranging from micromechanics (cell level) to living macro-systems (e.g. human biomechanics). Applications of biomechanics can be encountered in a number of areas of science and professional activities.
Biomechanics conceived in this manner can be utilized not only in the field of basic research but also in a wide range of professional activities - e.g. in rehabilitation medicine, ergonomics, forensic and biomedical engineering, sports, etc. The Training Department of Charles University and the Czech Academy of Sciences enables interdisciplinary education in doctoral studies on a wide scale and directed towards the specific application....

The purpose of doctoral studies in the field of Biblical Theology is for students to cultivate, in the usual way for advanced studies, their ability to think theologically and to deepen their knowledge in the relevant biblical theology disciplines on an expert level.
The field covers all aspects of the specialist study of the Bible, such as theological, literary, and historical factors. Studies focus on either the Old Testament or the New Testament field. They include the examination of biblical texts in their relevance for religious and cultural traditions. Depending on the specific dissertation project, studies may deal with textual, linguistic, literary, literary-historical, historiographical, religious, or cultural issues. Normally, they must also raise questions about the theological profile or overall testimony of Scripture in relation to relevant theological questions, and also deal with issues of understanding, communication, and interpretation. The working field of biblical studies also includes the related specialist disciplines – for example, the philology of the ancient and classical languages, the literature of the ancient Near East and the principal cultures of Antiquity, the phenomenology of religions and the study of the religions of antiquity, the archaeology and historiography of the relevant regions – and also a reflection on methodologies in the biblical field, hermeneutical issues, and the history of biblical research and its current trends. Studies are linked to an appropriate degree with other theological fields, and, like other branches of theology, have an interdisciplinary dimension....
