Introductory word

Academic Senate has chosen Martin Kubala as the new Dean candidate

The Academic Senate of the Faculty of Science has chosen the Biophysicist Martin Kubala from the Center of the Region Haná for Biotechnological and Agricultural Research as a candidate for the Dean in the next four years. In the first round, he received 11 votes, the minimum number required for the election. In the elections he has defeated the current dean Ivo Frébort and a Chemist Michal Čajan. The new Dean, whose term begins on February 1, must still be appointed by Rector Jaroslav Miller.

"My goal is to allow all faculty staff to develop their creative potential as much as possible. I would like to evenly support the three pillars that hold the faculty - namely teaching, science and its popularization. This is related to fair financing of these three components," said Kubala, who is particularly well-known in connection with the following projects promoting science: Badatel, Newton, or the Young Scientists' Conference. He has promised the senators, among other things, administrative simplification, which, in his view, is the biggest obstacle for the faculty to become even more competitive on an international scale. Prior to the election, he also spoke about the need to modify faculty legislation and improve communication within the faculty.

The current Dean Ivo Frébort has received eight votes in the first round. "This faculty is amazing and it has been a great honor for me to lead it in the last four years," Frébort said. He reminded that the faculty is one of the leading research faculties in the Czech Republic and has gained reputation in a number of disciplines also on an international scale. The third candidate, Michal Čajan, received one vote in the elections.
