Medical - Denmark (ba_DK_MED)
Are you passionate for technology and advances on science? Do you want to improve the life experience for people with a hearing disability? Do you also have a strong experience with signal processing and embedded system development?
Then we might have an exciting career for you as Biomedical Signal Processing Engineer at Oticon Medical in Nice (South of France).
Oticon Medical is committed to improve the quality of life of profoundly deaf patients. For that, we develop implantable medical devices and surgical techniques to restore profound hearing loss. As a member of one of the world’s largest groups of hearing health care companies, we share a close link with Demant sister companies and direct access to the latest advancements in hearing research and technologies. Our competencies span more than a century of innovations in sound processing and decades of pioneering experience in hearing implant technology.
You will be part of our R&D department in Sophia Antipolis in a highly skilled team, that creates cutting edge solutions within hearing healthcare. You will work with the development of our cochlear implant systems.
You bring the best on signal processing to our patients
In your new role, you will be part of a multicultural and multisite team, located across Denmark, France and Sweden, therefore some travel activity between the sites must be expected.
Your primary responsibility is to bring the best on signal processing for stimulation strategies and objective measurements for our Cochlear Implant solutions.
There is a wide range of development and research activities you will be involved in, but summed up, your main responsibilities can be divided into the following areas:
- Development of our future Cochlear Implant stimulation strategies.
- Propose and innovate on algorithms to achieve our feature roadmap
- Use our medical SW development cycle, which complies with regulatory requirements, to implement, optimize, verify and document these solutions
- Provide the rest of the organization with support in terms of technical knowledge, through delivery of testing protocols, training, discussion and daily support.
Solid experience on signal processing
One of the challenges in this job is to bring innovation to strengthen our stimulation strategies and biomedical sensing capabilities. Thus, you have a strong basis in signal processing:
- You understand the processes related to audio signal acquisition
- You master the principles of signal processing algorithms for acoustic and electrophysiology signals
- You are familiar with psychoacoustics, and acoustics
- You have experience on coding (eg. C++, C, perl scripts, matlab)
- You have demonstrated innovation in the area through patents or publications
- A PhD on signal processing or related fields is consider an advantage.
As a person, you have a strong sense of integrity and a strong scientific focus. You possess good communication skills and you understand the value of teamwork and you have a strong drive to bring novel concepts into products.
