Preferably PhD students from Canada, USA, Russia or Norway, but Master students from the same countries could also be considered.

The main goal is to prepare young scientists for particular challenges related to conducting science in the High North. Other goals are to create an arena where these young scientists may interact with senior scientists who are experienced in High North issues, in addition to building networks with other international students that have similar challenges. Throughout the week, senior scientists will be available to supervise on specific requests the students might have.

The main topics of the course will be human health related to environmental impacts, lifestyle choices, food security, climate change and practical statistical methods.
