Transferable Skills

What are the essential transferable skills of a PhD student? You can find the answer in various articles and websites such as academicpositions, findaphd, or cheekyscientist.

The European Research Framework definition of the R1 Researcher highlights (besides the research domain skills): critical thinking, ability to explain the outcome of the research, integrated language, communication and environment skills, especially in an international context.

To gain such skills, there are many educational opportunities offered to PhD students at our University. Below, we provide an overview of courses, events, and dedicated departments.

Not to miss a good event, you can also regularly check our news and events calendar where we post for you tips for courses or workshops offered by the University, research institutions or external subjects to doctoral students.

Fresh News from the Faculty of Science:

At the last moment, we decided to add to this Newsletter the latest news about the prestigious award Česká hlava for Martin Toul. This award is the highest honour for Czech scientists, and in the past, it has been awarded to Antonín Holý, Josef Koutecký, Václav Hořejší, Pavel Hobza and other great personalities of science. The Veolia Doctorandus Prize for Natural Sciences, awarded to young scientists for research in the natural sciences, was won by Martin Toul from the Faculty of Science at Masaryk University. His research focused on the function of the protein staphylokinase, which is used to treat stroke. Martin Toul has elucidated the action of the rohoro protein, which makes it possible to increase the effectiveness of this protein in treatment up to tenfold.

This year, Martin successfully completed his PhD studies in the Molecular and Cell Biology and Genetics programme and defended his dissertation in the European Doctorate mode as the MUNI Mendel Doctorandus participant. During his studies, Martin won several different awards. Winning the Česká hlava award is an excellent conclusion to his doctoral studies at Masaryk University.

Congratulations to Martin for winning this prestigious award!
