Academic mobility

Academic mobility

What is so great about leaving for research or postdoctoral stay, and what would probably annoy you? What is it like to move with your family, and what should you focus on when choosing the right place for you? Join us and find out about academic mobility during and after PhD.
The seminar is organized in cooperation with the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice.

The seminar is open to all students. We believe it will be most beneficial for PhD students in life sciences. However, even motivated undergraduate students or students from social sciences and humanities may benefit from attending. 

This seminar is co-organized in cooperation with the University of South Bohemia and with the support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.


Opening word

14:10 - 15:30
Short talks (Chrudinová, Moons, Miláček, Mottl)

15:30- 15:40

16:20 - 18:00
Snack and refreshments, coffee, networking, and informal discussions

USB celebrates success with MSc. Vedrana Šlipogor, Ph.D. at the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting

We are thrilled to announce that MSc. Vedrana Šlipogor, Ph.D., from the FSC Department of Zoology, has been selected to participate in the prestigious 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Physiology/Medicine on 25–30 June 2023. This remarkable achievement highlights the exceptional talent and dedication of Dr. Šlipogor in her field of expertise.

MSc. Vedrana Šlipogor, Ph.D., is a USB postdoctoral fellow of Dr. Martina Konečná, with research interests centred around evolutionary questions in behavioural ecology, ethology and comparative cognition, and particularly animal personality and its links with learning in primates (common marmosets) and subterranean rodents (naked mole-rats). Dr. Šlipogor conducted her undergraduate studies in Molecular Biology at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, interned in France and Austria, spent two field seasons in Brazil, and completed her doctoral dissertation in Biology and first postdoctoral post at the University of Vienna, before moving to the Czech Republic for her postdoctoral fellowship at USB, where she is involved in research, student supervision and teaching. For her research, Dr. Šlipogor was awarded several very competitive fellowships and grants, including L'ORÉAL-UNESCO Austria Fellowship ‘For Women in Science’.

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, established in 1951, serve as a globally renowned platform for fostering exchange between Nobel Laureates and young scientists. These meetings have become a symbol of scientific inspiration, nurturing the next generation of researchers, and building enduring networks of young scientists from around the world.

The success of Dr. Šlipogor´s application to participate in this event is a testament to her outstanding contributions and potential as a rising star in the field of Physiology/Medicine. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will allow her to engage with 30–40 Nobel Laureates and join the esteemed gathering of 600 young scientists from across the globe. The Lindau Meetings provide a unique environment where knowledge is shared, perspectives are broadened, and collaborations are forged.

The University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice takes great pride in Dr. Šlipogor's achievement, as it not only showcases her individual excellence but also reflects the University's commitment to fostering a culture of research and innovation. Her participation in this prestigious event will undoubtedly enhance USB’s reputation as a hub of scientific talent and excellence.

We extend our warmest congratulations to MSc. Vedrana Šlipogor, Ph.D., for this exceptional achievement. We are confident that her participation in the 72nd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting will be an invaluable experience, offering her unique opportunities for personal and professional growth. We eagerly anticipate the insights and inspiration she will bring back to USB and its scientific community.

The Laboratory of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry

In our laboratories, we mainly deal with the analysis of various samples using liquid and gas chromatography or atomic absorption spectrometry. We analyse water samples, soil, cigarette butts, plant materials, extracts from animal faeces, as well as selected substances in blood, serum and urine samples. In toxicity studies, we cooperate with the Department of Ecosystem Biology of our faculty and with the Department of Zoology, Fisheries, Hydrobiology and Apiculture of the Mendel University in Brno (Czech Rep.).

Besides developing and implementing the analytical methods, we are interested in environmentally oriented research in two directions:

  • the environmental fate of substances e.g. from cigarettes butts;
  • photodegradation of widely prescribed drugs under light conditions relevant to natural surface waters and toxicity tests of the photoproduct mixtures.

Our analytical laboratory is equipped with LC-UV/FLD/ECD instrument, LC-MS (linear ion trap) instrument, GC-FID/ECD (electron capture detector), and GC-MS instrument with triple quadrupole and flame atomic absorption spectrometer.  An UHPLC-Q-TOF instrument is planned to be purchased at the beginning of 2024. In the course of preparing samples for analysis, various techniques are used, of note the possibility of using ASE (Accelerated Solvent Extraction) should be mentioned. Irradiation of samples in photochemical studies is performed in the photochemical reactor Rayonet R100.

Over the last few years, we have introduced and validated various analytical methods. The details about individual analysed substances and methods are summarised in the Table.
