Fieldwork experience is required. In-depth knowledge of Arctic conditions is essential.
Personality traits needed for this position include good social communication skills and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. 
Fluency in English is essential, while knowledge of Greenlandic and Danish is an advantage, as is knowledge of the Greenland society.
