PhD Day

What does a doctoral study look like? What are the PhD students' rights and duties? What are the funding opportunities? What is the PhD study experience?

PhD Day answers all these questions (and many others). It‘s not only a handover of a complete package of information for PhD students (their rights, duties, grant opportunities, internships and research fellowships) but also an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues from other programs as well as from other faculties.

​The event is best suitable for the students at the beginning of their PhD study and those who are considering PhD study (namely undergraduate students who will finish their MSc), but everybody else is welcome as well.

Looking back to the PhD Day 2022

On 14 September 2022, the Bohunice Campus became the host of the inter-faculty PhD day.

The event was designed as an information session for new PhD students, providing them with the necessary information regarding doctoral studies, interdisciplinary training opportunities, student competitions, and presentations of popular mobility programmes. Existing Master's students already considering PhD studies were also invited, and the PhD day gave them insight into the demands that this study will require.

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.

If you were not at the PhD day, please check out the presentations on the following topics: Library presentation, Mobility, the HR Award project, the PhD study guide, or the "Why PhD and How to Succeed" presentation.
