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.

Rising to the challenges of COVID-19

MERL believes that having an internship be located in MERL's office allows for particularly good interaction between you and those that you will be working with at MERL. In addition, some intern projects, e.g., ones that require specialized laboratory equipment, can only be pursued in our office. Going forward, we expect that all internships will be in-person at MERL. If health and safety concerns do not permit this, we will reevaluate our plans and some internships might have to become remote.

It is a requirement at MERL that everyone working in MERL's space must be fully vaccinated. In order for you to have your internship at MERL, you will have to prove that you are fully vaccinated when you arrive at MERL, i.e., by showing your vaccination card.

  • ST2025: Background Oriented Schlieren Tomography

    • The Computational Sensing team at MERL is seeking motivated and qualified individuals to develop algorithms that can perform background oriented Schlieren (BOS) tomography. The project goal is to utilize both analytical and learning-based architectures to enable the reconstruction of 3D air flows in an indoor setting from BOS measurements. Ideal candidates should be Ph.D. students and have solid background and publication record in any of the following, or related areas: imaging inverse problems, large-scale optimization, learning-based modeling for imaging, Schlieren tomography, physics informed neural networks. Publication of the results produced during our internships is expected. The duration of the internships is anticipated to be 3-6 months. Start date is flexible.

  • CA2028: Mobile robots sensing, planning, and control

    • MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to collaborate in the development and experimental validation of sensing, planning, and control methods in various robotic testbeds (quadrotors, turtlebots, and mini-cars) at MERL. The ideal candidate is enrolled in a Masters/PhD program in Electrical, Mechanical, Aerospace Engineering, Robotics, Computer Science or related program, with prior experience in motion planning, control, optimization, computer vision, and their application in mobile robots, including experimental validation. The successful candidate is proficient in ROS, C/C++, and Python, and at least familiar with MATLAB. The expected duration of the internship is 6 months with a flexible start date in the late Fall/Winter 2023.

  • CA1940: Autonomous vehicle planning and contro in uncertain environments

    • MERL is seeking a highly motivated and qualified intern to collaborate with the Control for Autonomy team in research on planning and control for autonomous vehicles in uncertain surrounding environments. The research domain includes algorithms for path planning and control in environments that are uncertain and perceived by sensing and predicted according to models and data. The ideal candidate is expected to be working towards a PhD with strong emphasis in vehicle guidance and control, and to have interest and background in as many as possible of: vehicle dynamics modeling and control, sensor uncertainty modeling, data-driven prediction, predictive control for uncertain systems, motion planning. Good programming skills in MATLAB, Python are required, knowledge of C/C++, rapid prototyping systems, automatic code generation, vehicle simulation packages (CarSim, CarMaker) or ROS are a plus. The expected start of of the internship is in the late Spring/Early Summer 2022, for a duration of 3-6 months.
