In 1996, Inga Holube received her approval for Medical Physics and the certificate for Audiology of the German Society for Medical Physics. Since September 2001, she joined Oldenburg/Ostfriesland/ Wilhelmshaven University of Applied Sciences now reorganized to Jade University of Applied Sciences as a professor. Her main research interests are subjective and objective measures for the assessment of speech intelligibility and listening effort, the evaluation of hearing instruments as well as the epidemiology of hearing impairment. Inga Holube is a member of the German standardisation committee for hearing instruments and audiometric equipment, editor-in-chief (together with Uwe Baumann and Sebastian Hoth) for the German Journal of Audiology (Zeitschrift für Audiologie), member of the editorial board for International Journal of Audiology, board member of the German Audiological Society (DGA), and she won the science prize of the state of Lower Saxony (category outstanding scientist at a university of applied sciences) in 2018.
