About this program

Biophysics and Chemical Physics

The focus of this field lies at the interface between physics, biology, and chemistry. The course builds on the basic physics education that deepens in the fields of theoretical and experimental physics important for the description and investigation of molecules, biopolymers, supramolecular systems, and biological objects. The graduate gains knowledge of quantum theory and statistical physics of molecules and molecular systems, experimental methods of biophysics and chemical physics, especially optical and other spectroscopic methods, structural analysis, and imaging techniques. Students choose one of two specializations: theoretical or experimental biophysics and chemical physics. In the theoretical specialization they will gain deeper knowledge in the field of quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, or advanced theoretical spectroscopy; in the experimental specialization they will acquire knowledge in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology, biophysics of photosynthesis, or structural methods. Through regular seminars, diploma theses, and thematic lectures students get an idea of the current problems solved in individual fields and methods of scientific work. Thanks to a wide range of knowledge, graduates have the opportunity to apply in research and applied disciplines related to physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, material research, bio- and nano-technologies or pharmacy.

Admission requirements

Description of verification and evaluation criteria

The goal of the admissions review process is to select from the pool of applicants those individuals who have shown the capability and diligence expected of Charles University students. To apply for our Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics Master's programmes given in English you must

  • hold or be working towards a Bachelor’s or Master’s diploma and provide a certified copy thereof;
  • have sufficient academic background in the relevant fields;
  • have sufficient command of the English language; this can be demonstrated by providing your results in one of the standardized English tests that we recognize.

Conditions for admission

Admission to Bachelor's studies is conditioned by completed secondary education confirmed by a school-leaving certificate. Admission to Post-Bachelor studies (Master's programme) is likewise conditioned by completed education in any type of study programme.

Career paths

The graduate has knowledge of quantum theory and statistical physics of molecules and molecular systems, experimental methods of biophysics and chemical physics, especially optical and other spectroscopic methods, structural analysis, and imaging techniques. Graduates of theoretical specialization gain a deeper knowledge in the field of quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, or advanced theoretical spectroscopy. Graduates of experimental specialization acquire a deeper knowledge in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology, biophysics of photosynthesis, or structural methods. Through regular seminars the students will get an idea of the current problems solved in individual fields and methods of scientific work. They are proficient in communicating expertise in the form of presentations or written texts, also in English. Many graduates are expected to enter a career as a scientist. The acquired education offers graduates the opportunity to apply in interdisciplinary teams dealing with physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, material research, bio- and nano-technologies or pharmacy.
