What will you learn?

Biophysics at Masaryk University is a modern and amazing study program, that combines all basic disciplines of natural sciences. If you are interested in what the structure of a virus, protein, nucleic acid or their complexes look like, then biophysics is exactly what you are looking for.

“Biophysics is the queen of science the same way decathlon is the queen of athletics.”

Masaryk University is equipped with state-of-the-art instruments on which you can be the first in the world to discover the structures of some biomolecules and/or reveal the principles of particular biological processes. An experience from both theory and experiment will prepare you for a scientific career or career in technology companies or wherever you want.

Graduates of biophysics have found employment in the field of IT, abroad at universities and scientific institutions, but also in industry and technology companies. Brno, biophysics and Masaryk University are a promising choice!

Masaryk University has a long tradition in the field of biophysics and has a number of successful graduates, whether scientists or students (eg the Czech Head Doctorandus 2017 award). Research teams and teachers work at the institutes of the Academy of Sciences and at the CEITEC University Science Center, where a number of theses is created, from bachelor's to dissertation.

Thanks to the environment of the campuses Kotlářská and Bohunice, cooperation with other fields and experts in other disciplines is not a problem. Everything that these campuses are equipped with is fully available to students with the sole aim of developing their interest in knowledge and the ability to design and analyze theoretical methods and experimental results.

Practical training

Already from the first semester of the bachelor's study, students have the opportunity to practice in the environment of scientific laboratories within the course 'Individual project', which can be transferred to a bachelor's thesis in the third year. The follow-up study already presumes higher involvement in scientific activities within a scientific team during resolving the diploma thesis. In addition, diploma theses can be realized in cooperation with nanotechnology companies such as Tescan, ThermoFisher Scientific or Delong Instruments, and other companies.

Career opportunities

The program prepares students preferentially for a follow-up doctoral studies, either at the university or at the institutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, which qualifies the graduate as a future researcher.

The graduate will also work well in basic and applied research at universities, laboratory operations and companies, metrological institutions, institutions using informatics, etc. The graduate is capable of independent creative scientific work and solving more complex problems, initially at least in the biophysical field on which he focused.
