Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs, Inc. "MERL" provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, MERL complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities. This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruiting, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation and training.

MERL expressly prohibits any form of workplace harassment based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status. Improper interference with the ability of MERL's employees to perform their job duties may result in discipline up to and including discharge.

Working at MERL requires full authorization to work in the U.S and access to technology, software and other information that is subject to governmental access control restrictions, due to export controls. Employment is conditioned on continued full authorization to work in the U.S and the availability of government authorization for the release of these items, which might include without limitation, obtaining an export license or other documentation. MERL may delay commencement of employment, rescind an offer of employment, terminate employment, and/or modify job responsibilities, compensation, benefits, and/or access to MERL facilities and information systems, as MERL deems appropriate, to ensure practical compliance with applicable employment law and government access control restrictions.


  • EA2094: Imaging of nano-particle

    • MERL is looking for interns for the project of magnetic particle imaging (0907-a.pdf). We expect the intern to (1) build a model that describes the magnetic particle imaging system; (2) implement a few existing reconstruction algorithms and identify their relative strengths; (3) (ideally) develop/identify the algorithm specific for the system, and/or suggest the measurement schemes for image reconstruction. Candidates are expected to have basic understanding of electromagnetic theory and solid skill of coding (Python and/or C++ and/or matlab). Students from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering or related fields are encouraged to apply.
