Doctoral school of GEOLOGY

Doctoral School of Geology is connected to the dynamics of the global geological and geophysical research and has an elite promoter team that provides competent guidance for the development of doctoral theses in the field of:

  • Sedimentology, Basin analysis, Global changes (local and regional sedimentological studies, evaluation of mineral and energy resources, impact of human activities on global climate changes)

  • Biostratigraphy (paleontological studies and methodologies for stratigraphic correlations)

  • Mineralogy and Petrology (fundamental mineralogical research, solving problems encountered during the processing of ore, concentrates, pollution of environment)

  • Engineering geology, Environmental geology, Soil and rock mechanics (slope stability in soils and rocks; hydrotechical works stabilities; studies for surface transportation ways, geological hazards – landslides; hazardous – including nuclear – and non-hazardous waste disposal, geotechnical studies; discontinuities in rocks)

  • Hydrogeology (research for assessing resources of mineral, geothermal and drinking water, mathematical modeling of groundwater flow and transport of pollutants, design of protection area for tapping of groundwater, impact of waste disposal on water quality, remediation of groundwater quality).

  • Applied Geophysics (design, acquisition, processing and interpretation of geophysical information for natural resources (oil and gas, ore deposits,  drinking water), environmental analysis as well as modelling of various structures and anomaly sources)

Promoter team of Doctoral School of Geology has 20 professors and 30 researchers enrolled in the doctoral guidance committee. The PhD students can work in the eight research centers and the laboratories of the Faculty of Geology and Geophysics. The four departments of the Faculty of Geology and Geophysics support doctoral activities with the professional software available.
