ORCA Europe is a WS Audiology research lab located in Stockholm, Sweden. The ORCA Europe research team is one of three groups anchored in the Scientific Audiology team within Research and Development, and you will report to Filip Rønne, Global head of Scientific Audiology, based in Denmark. Your job will be to lead the team of international researchers. The core of the role is leadership, including people development, training, coaching, hiring, goal setting and feedback.
