As you are guest at Zackenberg, you will be covered by the Zackenberg expedition permit in the National Park, and you do not need to apply for this. However, if your research will include activities not complying with the National Park regulations, you are required to apply the Government of Greenland for additional permit(s)/dispensation well in advance.
Since the Government of Greenlands website is being built after a cyberattack in 2022, Arctic Hub has made an overview of research permits. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the information is up to date, but please see Research-permits-02.2023.pdf (arctichub.gl) to find relevant information regarding permits from the Government of Greenland, before going to Zackenberg. Additional permissions may be required, for example regarding research on mammals, minerals or genetic resources etc, see https://govgen.gl/?sc_lang=da and Scientific permit | Mineral Resources Authority - Naalakkersuisut (govmin.gl). It is your own responsibility to ensure that all relevant permits are obtained prior to field work, but please contact the Zackenberg secretariat if in doubt.
