How to Become a Supervisor

In accordance with Government Regulation No. 274/2016 Coll., Part Two, Title II, Chapter H, Section II, Paragraph 2 and Rector's Directive No. 13/2019, Article 14, Paragraph 3, only associate professors, professors and possibly other experts with a scientific degree and creative activity, which corresponds to the content focus of the dissertation, approved by the Research Board (hereinafter “RB”) of the faculty. The subject area board (hereinafter “SAB”) therefore proposes supervisors for individual students, taking into account their professional orientation and needs. The supervisor is appointed (or dismissed) by the dean of the faculty at which the student is enrolled based of such proposals and after the subsequent approval of the RB. The internal regulations of the faculty setting out the rules for the possible performance of the supervisor's activities apply exclusively to the employees of the relevant participating faculty and cannot be applied to supervisors from another participating faculty. The appointment of supervisors at the Second Faculty of Medicine of Charles University is regulated in the Dean's Provision No. 11/2017, Article 4.

The requirements of every SAB are different. In general, it applies, however, that the following must be submitted:

  • A brief application for the position of a supervisor addressed to the dean of the faculty, which includes the consent of the head of the supervisory department (director, head); no form is prescribed (usually on the letterhead of the applicant's workplace)
  • Professional CV in Czech
  • Completed form for supervisors – the so-called form "C"
  • A list of all publications in extenso
  • A proposal for 1–3 scientific topics suitable for those interested in doctoral studies (in Czech and English)
  • A scientific title following the name (Ph.D., CSc., DrSc.)
 

Applicants are asked to sign exclusively in blue ink. The application with all attachments must be printed, signed and sent or delivered in person to the Department for PhD Study. Please supply originals with signatures, not scans or photocopies. Please do not send the documents to the SAB, but only to the , to the following address:
