Doctoral Study Programmes
Environmental Chemistry and Technology (study in Czech language only)
In 2019, the faculty was accredited for the PhD study programme Environmental Chemistry and Technology with a standard length of study of 4 years. The study program is carried out in cooperation with the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of Czech Academy of Sciences, similarly to the previously performed field of Environmental Analytical Chemistry. The training places for doctoral students are the Faculty of Environment of UJEP or the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry in Řež. Teaching is also attended by the Faculty of Science of UJEP and a number of experts from other universities and institutes of Czech Academy of Sciences. Students are admitted to study at the Faculty of Environment of UJEP, the study is governed by internal regulations of the University.
The content of the study is very close to the content of the study in the previous programme of the same name. The study is aimed at deepening the knowledge of analytical chemistry, modern analytical methods and solving selected problems of environmental chemistry using methods of analytical chemistry.
Advanced Environmental Technology focuses on the use of advanced oxidation processes, photocatalysis, special and reactive sorbents, and selected biotechnological processes such as phytoremediation.
The study is carried out according to individual study plans, which are created according to established rules so that they include a certain proportion of theoretical subjects and profiling subjects.
In addition to verifying the knowledge of analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry and language skills, the interview includes a professional discussion of the possible focus of the doctoral dissertation. More information about doctoral studies can be obtained at e‑mail .
Landscape reclamation and ecosystem services (study in English language only)
Landscape reclamation and ecosystem services is focused on the education of experts capable of independent research and application of results in practice in the study of landscape, its ecosystems and provided ecosystem services, especially in terms of human impact and climate change. Environmental links, landscape changes, ecosystem functions will be studied, different types of remediation, revitalization, reclamation and sustainable management in the landscape, including their economic context, will be addressed. In addition to north-west Bohemia and its environmental problems, the primary region of interest of UJEP in Ústí nad Labem, the area of interest will be global from tropics up to the polar areas and concerning many different types of ecosystems. The study program is strongly interdisciplinary in order to link the environmental sciences with economic and technical approaches.
DSP graduates will gain broad transdisciplinary knowledge and competencies for assessing the state of the landscape and for solving problems of restoration of the disturbed landscape and ecosystem services. They will understand it from the perspective of environmental protection as well as from an economic perspective, including reflection of the regulatory environment. Graduates will be prepared to systematically evaluate ecosystem services in the landscape, especially on the basis of understanding important ecosystem processes. They will also able to evaluate the various ecosystem functions of the landscape in relation to key economic activities, assess the links between the state of the environment, ecosystems and human activities. Graduates will be able to implement independent basic and applied research, prepare and lead research projects and propose system measures and comprehensive arrangements to increase biodiversity and ecological stability of the disturbed cultural landscape and verify implemented solutions, including evaluation of their economic and social impacts.
