2 new study programs
To better meet the growing social, scientific, and corporate demand for professionals in the environment and health, and associated fields, two new study programs were introduced in 2018
Since RECETOX’s inception, more than 500 students have successfully graduated from the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs. Many more are joining thanks to their increasing popularity
Modern research infrastructure
Studying is supported by state of the art equipment. The center operates 50 high-end laboratories occupying an area of 4,000m2, several accredited laboratories, and a biobank
Why Study at RECETOX?
Choosing the right university and study program can be daunting, particularly since to a large extent they determine one’s future career path.
Luckily RECETOX is the Czech Republic’s top academic and research institution in environmental sciences - so the choice is easy.
Answering important questions
How is our health affected by the environment, noise, stress, or lifestyle? Which substances interfere with hormonal balance? Are nanoparticles toxic to our body? How can artificial intelligence, neural networks, or machine learning be used in science? What is genotoxicity and what factors affect it?
Research that matters
At RECETOX, research is not in and of itself the goal, but rather the means of obtaining practical, and applicable results that will lead to a direct, positive impact on the lives of Czech and other citizens around the world. By working closely with organizations (e.g. companies, hospitals, firefighters), as well as with the government and international organizations (e.g. UN, WHO, EC), research can be focused on areas where it will have the highest impact.
Alongside their academic responsibilities, instructors at RECETOX conduct research, publish in top scientific journals, participate in international research projects and conferences, and collaborate with world-renowned research institutions, and as a result, they can tailor the curriculum towards the most current and relevant areas of study.
Prestigious Czech university
Masaryk University is the second largest university in the Czech Republic and one of the most prestigious and respected higher education institutions in Central Europe. The Bohunice campus boasts new ultra-modern teaching facilities as well as world-class laboratories and classrooms.
State-of-the-art research infrastructure
In the last two decades, Masaryk University has invested heavily in research infrastructure, whose quality often exceeds that of several internationally leading universities. Access to the state-of-the-art research infrastructure is available not only internally, but also to external researchers, collaborators and other academic and industrial users.
Numerous international research projects
RECETOX participates in more than 50 scientific projects at the national and international levels annually, almost a quarter of which are financed from abroad. Currently RECETOX is taking part in 15 international consortium projects funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 program, which puts it in par with Europe’s top research institutions. Within your study, you may work on these projects.
RECETOX is a community
Students, academics, researchers, technicians, administration, and management meet regularly at joint seminars, that in addition to lectures, offer a platform for discussing broader topics, such as the role of universities in the 21st century.
At RECETOX, students are our colleagues.
In addition, we organize activities to build and strengthen relationships.
Applications are open from November until February.
