We are now seeking a highly motivated and talented researcher for fun challenges in our research group.

Job description

The position will be permanent and full-time after a 6-month probationary period. ORCA Europe is a small research group (five people), which means that everyone has a number of duties. For the current position, the key responsibilities are listed below.

We welcome applications from people with a strong technical background, who have a PhD (or equivalent qualification) in audiology, psychoacoustics, electrical engineering or a related discipline, and who have relevant research experience in experimental studies with human participants. Strong experimental, statistical, and computational skills are important, as is a practical knack. Basic knowledge in sound engineering and/or experience of acoustical measurement systems is beneficial. Good MATLAB programming skills are important and experience with other programming languages, such as C++, is beneficial.


The applicant needs to have a good ability to work both independently and as a part of a team. Good social skills are necessary. We are looking for an enthusiastic person with good communication skills. Very good English, both written and spoken, is essential. A willingness to learn Swedish is important.
