University of Bordeaux is looking for a Master student willing to work in our theoretical chemistry group in Bordeaux for a 5-months research internship. It is funded by a joint research program with University of Waterloo (Canada) so it means that we can cover part of accommodation and travel expanses (700 euros per months) and complete with Erasmus mobility grant or others. The scientific program is detailed below and please see the paper already published this year related to the project.
If any of your student is interested, please contact me at email@example.com
The research project aims to overcome the limitations of conventional gas sensing technologies by combining machine learning algorithms with metal oxide-organic thin films synthesis (high-performance metal oxide-organic thin film gas sensors for detecting amines such as ammonia, dimethylamine, and trimethylamine). By exploring various organic thin film materials, we will identify optimal combinations with semiconductor metal oxides to enhance the sensitivity, selectivity, and stability of gas sensors within a combined experimental and computational approach.
The 6-months internship project will be focused on the theoretical part with electronic structure calculations, making use of quantum chemistry technics and more sepcifically density functional theory (DFT) for large systems. Linear-scaling DFT calculations will be performed with the CONQUEST code. This will allow us to handle large-size chemical systems, including those with defects. The combination of AI algorithms and linear-scaling DFT should provides an efficient and systematic means to navigate the extensive compositional space of multicomponent oxide-based chemiresistors.

University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague) is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of an intensive educational program for a group of 10 university students from NIMS University Jaipur. This unique program, which lasted from September 25 to November 18, combined theoretical instruction in chemistry with practical experience acquired during a two-week period.
Advanced Educational Program for Students from NIMS University Jaipur
The program offered by UCT Prague was carefully designed to provide students with a comprehensive overview of various aspects of chemistry, from theory to practical application. The course was divided into several segments, ensuring that students gained a deep understanding of the subject and practical skills.
Block Teaching: The program began with two weeks of block teaching, covering approximately 10 courses in half-day sessions. Topics included raw material sources for the chemical industry, chemical technologies, process design, technical catalysis, and chemical product safety. Typical Laboratory Tasks: Students participated in laboratory tasks, divided into five groups and rotating through 1-2 day tasks. Safety training was provided collectively and then specifically for individual tasks. Project: Students worked on projects in groups of three, involving laboratory measurements, evaluation, protocol, and a joint presentation.
Practical Training at ORLEN Unipetrol: Intensive Experience in the Petrochemical Industry
The final part of the program was conducted in collaboration with ORLEN Unipetrol in Litvínov, where students completed a two-week internship in a petrochemical operation. This practical module gave students the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge gained at UCT Prague in a real industrial environment.
The ORLEN Unipetrol internship program included:
Initial training, first aid, fire safety training Familiarization with multiskilling and a training unit Operator training simulator for DCPD Work with distillation columns and a training laboratory Tours of the operation
This diverse and intensive program allowed students from NIMS University Jaipur to not only expand their academic horizons but also gain valuable practical experience, which will be key to their future careers in the field of chemistry.
This educational project is an example of successful international cooperation in education, strengthening the relationship between UCT Prague and NIMS University Jaipur. We expect similar initiatives to continue developing and strengthening scientific and academic cooperation between the Czech Republic and India."
On Saturday, 18th November, the Welcome Office organised an autumn walk to the Monastery of St. Adalbert and St. Margaret in Prague's Břevnov. The historical interpretation was once again provided by our excellent guide Ing. Martin Bělohradský. Our group visited the interior of St Margaret's Basilica, from where the participants descended to the Romanesque crypt with foundations dating back to the 11th century.
In the upper part of the monastery they admired the beautiful Theresian´s Hall and the interior of the Prelature.
We did not miss the Vojtěška spring, which refers to the legend of the foundation of the monastery by Prince Boleslav II and Bishop Vojtěch in 993 AD.
The walk ended in the garden of the monastery, from where there is a beautiful view of the surrounding part of Prague 6.
Prague, Czech Republic, [6.11.2023] – The University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague (UCT Prague), in a resplendent display of international collaboration and educational excellence, hosted the esteemed Kyutech Autumn School from October 21 to 27, 2023. This event marked a significant milestone in the ongoing partnership between VŠCHT and the Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech), Japan.
Under the expert guidance of Professor Josef Krýsa from the Institute of Inorganic Technology and in coordination with UCT Prague's Department of International Relations, the autumn school provided an immersive learning experience for Japanese students. This year's event symbolized a triumphant return following a four-year hiatus due to the Covid pandemic, reflecting a renewed commitment to global educational exchange.
The autumn school, a continuation of the successful sessions held in 2018 and 2019, witnessed participation from 14 esteemed students from Kyutech. They were accompanied by distinguished Professors Teruhisa Ohno and Mitsuru Kitamura. The curriculum was meticulously designed to encompass Theoretical and Environmental Aspects of Chemical Technologies. UCT Prague's faculty, including Professor Josef Krýsa, Associate Professor Martin Paidar, Ing. Michal Baudys, and Ing. Šárka Paušová, played a pivotal role in delivering this comprehensive educational experience.
A highlight of the program was an innovative Workshop where both Czech and Japanese educators and students had the opportunity to present and discuss their cutting-edge research topics. This academic exchange culminated in an informal gathering at the café Carbon, fostering a sense of community and shared learning.
Complementing the academic pursuits were a series of cultural and exploratory activities, offering the students a rich taste of Czech culture and history. Visits to the iconic Estates Theatre, exploratory tours of Prague, an excursion to the Bernard brewery, and a trip to the silver museum and cathedral in Kutná Hora enriched the students' experience, blending education with cultural appreciation.
Looking ahead, UCT Prague eagerly anticipates the continuation of this fruitful collaboration, with plans already underway for the fourth iteration of the autumn school in the 2024/2025 academic year, to be hosted by Kyutech in Japan.

The Welcome Office organised the third guided walk for UCT Prague foreign students, researchers and their family memebers on Sunday, October 15 this year. This time we went to Vyšehrad, an important place for a Czech nation with a rich history. In the fortifications we visited the Casemates and the Gorlice Hall with the original statues from the Charles Bridge. We toured the beautiful interior of the Basilica of St. Peter and Paul and went to see the cemetory with the graves of famous poeple. Former UCT graduate Ing. Martin Belohradsky guided the group and told a lot about the history of this significant place and legends associated with it.
The conference serves as a hub for meeting representatives of universities from all over the world, to discuss possible inter-university collaborations, and also as a place for education and sharing experiences in the field of internationalization.
The conference was attended by more than 6900 participants - representatives of universities, national agencies, and companies offering support and services in the field of international education. We believe that our participation will have a positive impact on the development of new strategic partnerships."
On Thursday, September 14, join the Culture Course led by Caleb Daniel House, MSc. (USA).
Caleb House was born and raised in Northern California. Since 2003 he has lived in 10 countries across Europe, Asia, and Africa as a student, volunteer, teacher, researcher, and project manager. Along the way, he slowly realized that the deep differences in culture are not the main problem, rather the way we think about culture can have a make-or-break impact on the experience abroad. Through a long process of failures and successes, he developed a set of tools to overcome the challenges and to make the most of living in a foreign country. Since 2018 he has worked in the International Relations Office of the Czech Technical University in Prague.
The Culture Course provides insight into culture shock, culture fatigue, how to think about culture when you're a foreigner, or how to make the most of your time in a foreign country despite challenges.
