PhD in Immunology

General

Program Description

Immunology studies the mechanisms of immune responses on a molecular and cellular level in health and in various pathological situations. Both experimental and clinical models are studied.


Description of verification and evaluation criteria

The entrance exam is a one round and consists of more parts in form of presentations, interviews, and discussions based on written preparation (tasks given by the committee). The applicants present their results from their master studies. The whole entrance exam takes place in one day.

Based on a written request submitted electronically together with the application but no later than by 19 May 2019, the Dean may permit the entrance examination to take place via information and communication technology, but only for serious and documented reasons such as health or study abroad.

During the entrance examination, the candidate must demonstrate the technical and linguistic skills to study the given program, along with attributes necessary for scientific work. The examination is graded with a maximum of 100 points.


Conditions for admission

Admission to Doctoral studies is conditioned by successful completion of a Master's study program.

Verification method: entrance exam
Confirmation date (of entrance exam) from: 17.06.2019 until: 28.06.2019
Alternative date (of entrance exam) from: 08.07.2019 until: 19.07.2019

Such a request, along with documentation that the conditions have been met, must be submitted (but not electronically) by 19 May 2019.


Career Prospect

Immunology is a field of science concerned with the study of the immune system and mechanisms regulating immune reactions. A graduate that has finished the Ph.D. program in immunology has acquired extensive theoretical and practical knowledge in immunology and cellular and molecular biology. Their training includes interdisciplinary education ranging from biology to biochemistry and the problems of clinically important diseases of the immune system. Graduates are capable of independent research work and have mastered a broad range of methods in the fields of gene expression, proteomics, tissue culture and analysis of samples and biological materials. They readily find positions in academic and corporate laboratories of basic and applied research as well as in clinical establishments.
