Dear researchers and scientists,
It is with great excitement that we extend this open invitation to collaborate with Eriksholm Research Centre, the world’s leading facility for applied hearing research. Our diverse and multidisciplinary team is dedicated to advancing knowledge and understanding in various domains, currently with a particular focus on three areas:
Our scientific approach encompasses various research methodologies, including EEG, fNIRS, pupillometry, and other physiological measures but also with field trials using data logging and Ecological Momentary Assessment.
At Eriksholm Research Centre, you will experience a diverse, professional, and engaged team, driven by academic curiosity, that seeks to genuinely empower and improve the quality of life for those with a hearing loss. You will find a supportive atmosphere with colleagues that share a deep respect for each other’s professional and personal wellbeing.
Join us at Eriksholm Research Centre, where scientific excellence and collaborative spirit converge.

In 1976, Oticon, one of the world’s largest hearing aid companies and a member of Demant, founded the Eriksholm Research Centre to carry out long-term academic research with the purpose of making audiological discoveries with the potential to benefit people with hearing loss. Today Eriksholm has research facilities that include EEG, Ear-EEG, motion capture, eye-tracking, fNIRS, speech testing, a large anechoic chamber with speaker array. Furthermore, Eriksholm contains a fully supported clinic and audiological facility, maintaining the rehabilitation of the more than 300 voluntary test subjects that participate in our experiments.
Being part of Oticon, Eriksholm offers the opportunity to bring research ideas closer to impact the life of people with hearing loss.
This is realized through close collaborations with world leading academic research institutions. By bringing experts together, Eriksholm can create mutually beneficial research synergies and open new lines of inquiry in the broader research community.
By engaging in continuous dialogue with many people living with hearing loss and the care professionals dedicated to helping them, Eriksholm can maintain a deep understanding of the real-life implications of hearing loss and gauge the impact of its ideas with real people in their everyday lives.
The result is a team of multi-disciplinary staff able to identify and demonstrate new opportunities within audiology, signal processing and behavioral science. This lays the foundation for Oticon to further develop audiological concepts and apply them in hearing solutions that empower people with hearing loss to communicate freely, interact naturally and participate actively.
As active members of the international scientific community, Eriksholm’s results are published regularly.
The Danish work environment is characterized by a flat organizational structure with a low power distance between managers and employees. The horizontal structure invites open dialogue between management and employees. Competence development is highly prioritized, and most workplaces regularly offer continuing education to their employees.
Most expats moving to Denmark describe the work-life balance as one of the great advantages of living in Denmark. A full-time position in Denmark covers 37 hours a week and a normal workday will be from 08:00-16:00. Danes focus equally on developing their working lives and private lives. Personal safety is high as well. Children walk / bike to school. The Danish way of life is based on mutual trust and tolerance. Compared to many other economically advanced countries, crime rates in Denmark are low.
