Greenland Center for Health Research, University of Greenland, invites PhD students to apply for and participation in our PhD course. For the past two years Arctic Communities have been challenged by the Covid-19 pandemic in different ways and there are important lessons to learn from all Arctic regions. This PhD Course will focus on diverse community perspectives from across the Arctic including methodological perspectives on conducting case studies, applying a strength-based theoretical framework, and bridging Indigenous Sciences with Western Sciences when doing health research in the Arctic. Further the course will bring together experts and knowledge holders in the field of circumpolar health research to talk about lessons learned during the pandemic and opportunities for collaboration across the Arctic.
