Earlier this year, in January 2023, The Arctic Five had a call for Arctic Five Fellows that closed in March. By the summer, four doctoral students at Umeå University had been selected for the program.
The Arctic Centre at Umeå University is proud to announce that four of the Umeå university's doctoral students and postdocs have been selected as new Arctic Five Fellows. The Arctic Five is a collaborative organization that strives to develop innovative and relevant Arctic research and higher education.

The doctoral students and postdocs who were selected are:
Albin Stjernbrandt – Senior consultant physician and PhD, engaged in occupational and environmental research at the Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine.
Magnus Zingmark – Affiliated as visiting researcher at the Department of Epidemiology and Global Health
Philip Jerand – PhD student in archaeology at the Department of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies.
All four are active in different research fields at Umeå University and will contribute to The Arctic Five's research initiative and promote development in the Arctic.
Anngelica Kristoferqvist at the Arctic Centre at Umeå University thinks it will be exciting to collaborate with the fellows:
- Their contributions will be valuable in increasing our understanding of the challenges and opportunities that the Arctic region offers, and we look forward to follow their research progress and collaboration to promote sustainable development in the Arctic, she says.
As part of the program, the fellows will participate in international and Arctic conferences, as well as hold seminars during their fellowship period. They will also be prioritized for strategic funding and engage in local events with The Arctic Five, as well as activities organized by the Arctic Centre. This recognition marks Umeå University's commitment to increasing knowledge about the Arctic and promoting cooperation for a sustainable future in the region.
