Programme description

The study focuses on understanding of the fundamentals of analytical processes directed to solving a broad spectrum of analytical problems effectively. Attention is paid to develop the abilities of synthesis of knowledge and critical experiment evaluation. Besides practical skills to use modern analytical techniques including highly sophisticated instruments for solution of different tasks, the competences to design new analytical procedures for complicated samples, such as identification of metabolites, chiral discrimination, study of peptides and protein interaction with small molecules, evaluation of authenticity of food, detection of illegal manipulation with controlled substances as drugs or chemical weapon precursors, as well as the competences to participate in construction of new analytical devices are developed.

Requirements for admission

To pass interview discussing professional activities of an applicant, his/her interest and his/her future goals during the study.

Programme teaching goals

To prepare a graduate for professional activities in scientific and government/public institutions as well as in the commercial sphere.

Graduates‘ profile

Graduate of doctoral studies is familiar with the theoretical and methodical basis of analytical chemistry. He/she is able to mathematically describe analytical procedures and processes, to process experimental results using mathematical and statistical tools. He/she knows the fields of chemistry as a whole in their mutual context. He/she communicates with colleagues from other countries and presents his/her results at scientific meetings mostly in English. He/she is acquainted with information technology in terms of information acquisition, exchange and processing of own data. He/she uses basic laboratory and statistical software. He/she tests and operates instruments under ISO standards. He/she is able to install and to modify sophisticated laboratory instrumentation. He/she is able to participate in the development of new equipment. He/she develops and carries out analytical methods and techniques of qualitative, quantitative and structural analysis and electrochemical, spectral, separation, biochemical techniques as well as some special methods of modern physics.

Employability prospect

Graduates are able to work in all scientific teams that need to address the problems of controlling composition and chemical transformations in any material system. The graduates' workplaces can be universities, academia, sectoral and corporate research centers, industrial and agricultural enterprises, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, health care institutions, all chemical and control laboratories. They can manage control laboratories, monitoring workplaces (e.g. drug, food, environment, etc.) and are ready to manage control institutions and projects.
