  • ME1022: Advanced MPC technologies

    • MERL is looking for highly motivated individuals to work on developing and implementing high speed optimization algorithms for model predictive control applications. Successful candidates will collaborate with MERL researchers to develop, analyze, and implement optimization algorithms on highly parallel and reconfigurable embedded target hardware. The ideal candidate is a MS or Ph.D. student with experience in model predictive control, optimization algorithms, and GPU and FPGA programming. Proficiency in C/C++ programming, specifically using CUDA and openCL, is required. Experience using openCL to program FPGAs is preferred. Experience with algorithm development in Matlab is preferred. Experience with real time systems is a plus. Publication of relevant results in conference proceedings and journals is expected. The duration of the internship is 3-6 months. Start date is flexible between January and July 2017.
