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.

Qualified applicants for MERL internships are individuals who have or can obtain full authorization to work in the U.S. and do not require export licenses to receive information about the projects they will be exposed to at MERL. The U.S. government prohibits the release of information without an export license to citizens of several countries, including, without limitation, Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria (Country Groups E:1 and E:2 of Part 740, Supplement 1, of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations).

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.
