Open positions - research at UCT Prague

UCT Prague campus

UCT Prague encourages academics from all around the world to compete for positions at our university.

We regularly prepare special programmes with assured funding for postdocs and junior researchers, such as ChemJets.

Moreover, we are keen on hosting researchers with Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF). MSCA-IF is a prestigious funding for promising researchers of any nationality who comply with the mobility condition – you have spent at least 12 months during the last 36 months immediately before the call deadline (usually mid-September) outside the Czech Republic. Fellowships last 1-2 years and help researchers boost their careers.

The Department of Research and Development can assist you with your application by performing an eligibility check and providing feedback on a draft proposal.

Even if there is currently no open call, do not hesitate to contact us. We are always open to cooperate on good science project.
