A numerical method is applied to the calculation of bound-state energies of fermions in Skyrme fields. The models considered for the field are smoothed one- and two-step wells and a numerical approximation to the exact hedgehog soliton. The results for the smoothed wells confirm earlier work that showed the fermion spectrum to be sensitive to local variations in the Skyrme field. The spectrum for the hedgehog Skyrmion is similar to the spectra obtained by others for linear and ex-ponential models.
