During the PhD day, all participating faculties (MUNI SCI, MUNI SPORT, MUNI MED, MUNI PHARM) and CEITEC Institute were introduced by their representatives. They shared with the participants the possibility of supporting their PhD students through mentoring, TAC (Thesis Advisory Committee) and social networking to build a scientific community.
One of the highlights of this year's PhD day was the signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation in advancing PhD studies between the faculties in the Bohunice University Campus (MUNI SCI, MUNI SPORT, MUNI MED), the Faculty of Pharmacy and the CEITEC Institute. This connection has enabled closer cooperation and sharing in the field of interdisciplinary education of doctoral students. This prepared the ground for establishing the new MUNI Mendel Doctorandus study programme, whose ceremonial presentation was made by the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Science Luděk Bláha during the PhD day.
The new course MUNI Mendel Doctorandus provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary education, acquisition of soft skills and extended internships abroad. Last but not least, the successful graduate of this programme will also receive the European Doctorate, which is an additional benefit in the next steps of the career of our PhD students.
