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.

  • MS2012: Residual Model Learning for Building Energy Systems

    • MERL is looking for a highly motivated and qualified candidate to work on learning residual dynamics to augment ODE/DAE-based models of building energy systems. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of system identification, optimization, machine learning and/or function approximation; additional understanding of energy systems is a plus. Hands-on programming experience with numerical optimization solvers and Python is preferred; experience with Modelica/FMUs is a plus. PhD students are strongly preferred, as an expected outcome of the internship is a publication in a high-tier venue. The minimum duration of the internship is 12 weeks; start time is flexible.

  • MS1851: Dynamic Modeling and Control for Grid-Interactive Buildings

    • MERL is looking for a highly motivated and qualified candidate to work on modeling for smart sustainable buildings. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of modeling renewable energy sources, grid-interactive buildings, occupant behavior, and dynamical systems with expertise demonstrated via, e.g., peer-reviewed publications. Hands-on programming experience with Modelica is preferred. The minimum duration of the internship is 12 weeks; start time is flexible. This internship is preferred to be onsite at MERL, but may be done remotely where you live if the COVID pandemic makes it necessary.

  • MS1958: Simulation, Control, and Optimization of Large-Scale Systems

    • MERL is seeking a motivated graduate student to research numerical methods pertaining to the simulation, control, and optimization of large-scale systems. Representative applications include large vapor-compression cycles and other multiphysical systems for energy conversion that couple thermodynamic, fluid, and electrical domains. The ideal candidate would have a solid background in numerical methods, control, and optimization; strong programming skills and experience with Julia/Python/Matlab are also expected. Knowledge of the fundamental physics of thermofluid flows (e.g., thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics), nonlinear dynamics, or equation-oriented languages (Modelica, gPROMS) is a plus. The expected duration of this internship is 3 months.
