Student Assistant for Audiology Research at Oticon A/S

Student Assistant for Audiology Research at Oticon A/S


Do you have good Matlab skills and solid knowledge of the human auditory system? Do you have experience with auditory modeling and interest in audiology and hearing-aid rehabilitation? Do you want a student position where you both build up your professional qualifications and participate in making a true difference for people all over the world?


Then we have a unique opportunity for you in our Centre for Applied Audiology Research! We are situated in Smørum, next to both buses and S-train.

Auditory modeling and applied audiological research
In your new department, our primary focus is audiological research and clinical testing of novel features in future hearing aids under development as well as market-released devices. Your primary job will be to support our ongoing research and testing activities.


Some of your general tasks could be to:

  • Verify hearing-aid performance via measurements and computer simulations
  • Write documentation reporting simulation and measurement results
  • Use models to simulate the effects of hearing loss and hearing-aid signal processing
  • Provide technical support for ongoing experimental work and internal clinical testing
  • Contribute to various support tasks within the team


We expect you to work corresponding to no less than 1½ days a week distributed to suit both your and our schedule. This may increase in busy periods; however, we also offer flexibility around exams and holidays. We are looking for a candidate who can start as soon as possible and who is in the final year of the Bachelor’s or the first year of the Master’s degree.

Structured engineering student with an eye for quality
In order for you to be able to handle your new student job, we expect you to be an engineering student who is proficient in Matlab and has a solid understanding of human auditory processing and hearing loss.
As a person, you are detail-oriented, proactive and service-minded. You will work with members from the entire team as well as other divisions in Oticon and therefore you should have an open and out-going nature. We expect you to be able to plan and organize your own tasks and ask for help if you need it.


What do we offer?
We offer the opportunity to become part of a large international organization and to experience first-hand how marketing strategies are developed and executed. We have an informal work environment where you will be included in daily decisions and where your input is valued and encouraged.

Want to be part of the team?

Please send your CV and motivation letter as soon as possible – deadline is 31th of May 2020. We will already now be screening weekly and invite relevant candidates for interviews. Please, we only accept applications through our online platform. If you would like to know more about the job, please contact Sébastien Santurette – sesn@oticon.com.


We look forward to hearing from you.


Make a true difference!
By joining the Oticon team, you help bring sounds to the millions of hearing impaired all over the world so they can live natural lives with friends and family.

You will find the perfect framework for your professional and personal development in a culture built on trust, openness and mutual respect. We welcome you in a growing international company where we push hard to be at the forefront of what is technically possible. No matter if the goal is a new, highly advanced hearing aid feature, a new ERP system or a totally revolutionary marketing tool, we strive to excel.

We are very proud of our company, our products and our unique culture. But don’t just take our word for it. In 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, “Ingeniøren” (the Engineer) has awarded us the number one employer within electronics and telecommunications in Denmark. Want to join us?
