Postgraduate Studies

PhD students form the basis of our research teams and represent the future of Czech science. We are looking for ambitious, well-motivated, and talented students interested in science.

I chose the IEM CAS mainly because of my supervisor. When we got to know each other, immediately we formed a connection and we made a good team.

    • In recruiting researchers, we follow the principles of an open, transparent selection procedure (OTM-R), which ensures a uniform selection procedure for all positions offered. These principles and procedures are also applied to a reasonable extent in selecting non-scientists.

      The basic principles of OTM-R are openness, transparency and non-discrimination. The requirements for applicants vary depending on the nature of the position and are always defined in the relevant advertisement, which defines our requirements for applicants. The selection procedure imposes minimum administrative requirements on the candidate, and for each selection, a minimum three-member panel is set up, which is gender-balanced and consists of the HR specialist, the head or their delegate of the organisational unit filling the post and one or more other members.

      Candidates shall be informed of their inclusion in the selection procedure and shall be informed of its completion and outcome at the end of the process. All personal materials are handled in accordance with the GDPR and Act No. 110/2019 Coll. on the processing of personal data. All principles and procedures of the selection procedure are enshrined in the internal directive Personnel Processes - Principles and Principles of the Selection Procedure for Filling a Vacancy.
