    • MD1886: Co-design of robotic arm and control systems

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated and qualified individual to conduct research in model-based robotic system design. The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in robotic dynamics and simulation, motion planning and control, simulation-based optimization, surrogate modeling, and coding skills. Demonstrated experience on implementing robotic dynamics and simulation/optimization software such as Matlab is a necessity. Ph.D. students in mechanical engineering, robotics, computer science, and electrical engineering are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible and the duration is about 3 months.

    • MD1887: Optimization and control of xEV and electric aircraft

      MERL is seeking a motivated and qualified individual to conduct research in modeling, control, simulation and analysis of electric system involved in xEV and electric aircraft. The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in some of the following areas: modeling, control, and simulation of electrical systems (including generators, motors, power electronics and batteries), aerodynamics, mission analysis, flight dynamics, and multi-disciplinary system design optimization. Demonstrated experience in software/language such as Modelica or Matlab/Simulink/Simscape is a necessity. Knowledge and experience of CarSim, NPSS, SUAVE, and FLOPS is a definite plus. Senior Ph.D. students in automotive, aerospace, and electrical engineering are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible and the duration is about 3 months.
