New rector of Prague’s Charles University, Tomáš Zima, was inducted in office on Tuesday. A doctor and biochemist, Professor Zima served as dean of the university’s First Faculty of Medicine between 2005 and 2012. President Miloš Zeman, who attended the ceremony, said Professor Zima’s election to the post was a guarantee of good cooperation between the head of state and the academic community; the ties were strained after President Zeman last year refused to appoint one of his critics as professor.
