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, Sudan and Syria (Country Groups E:1 and E:2 of Part 740, Supplement 1, of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations).


  • MS1466: Modelica-Based Control of HVAC Equipment

    • MERL seeks a highly motivated intern to develop an interface between real-time control systems that are implemented in the Modelica language, and laboratory HVAC equipment that is controlled by Labview. The control algorithms are developed using our Modelica library of HVAC components, and are realized natively in the Modelica language using the Synchronous Library. They are run in real-time on a PC using the Modelica Device Drivers library, and communicate with the Labview system via UDP. The intern would be responsible for developing professional-grade code to mature this interface, and then conduct experiments to test new control algorithms in our laboratory. Expertise using software development tools, such as Microsoft Visual Studio and network protocols such as UDP, is necessary. Experience with Modelica is strongly preferred. Knowledge and experience of vapor compression systems is also strongly preferred. Knowledge of control theory, including classical feedback and finite state machines, along with related laboratory experience is required. On-site employment is preferred, although it may be possible to conduct this work remotely. Students enrolled in a Masters or Ph.D. degree program of study are encouraged to apply. The internship is expected to be 3-6 months in duration, preferably in the fall or winter, 2020.
