2. Traineeships: Finding a supervisor

Students applying for a traineeship are expected to find a supervisor at UCT, Prague with the help of our faculty International Coordinators.

Below you can find links to our faculties’ websites together with contact information to faculty International Coordinators.

On the websites, there is information about the faculty’s departments and their current research. After you will choose a faculty and topic/area of your research, please contact the faculty’s coordinator, who can help you find a suitable supervisor. You are also welcome to address a potential supervisor directly (in this case please keep the faculty coordinator in copy).

In your email to the faculty coordinator/potential supervisor there is space to introduce yourself, present your experiences and background, state how long traineeship you would like to take, describe what area you are interested in etc. Following attachments should be included:

  • CV
  • Transcript of records
  • Motivational letter for the specific laboratory/research topic

After you will have a supervisor, the Department of International Relations ( incoming@vscht.cz ) should receive a written confirmation from him/her (by email), that you are accepted for a traineeship and at which dates.

Once you are accepted for a traineeship it is only possible to cancel the traineeship in exceptional cases (good reason should be provided, it has to be announced enough time in advance). This is because our laboratories are reserving the place for you (other applicants might be rejected, reservations for instruments are done, coworkers are registered for you etc.) which makes it very complicated for us to cancel the planned traineeships at last minute.
