    • MD1593: Design Optimization for Electric Machines

      MERL is seeking a motivated and qualified intern to conduct research on design optimization of electrical machines. The ideal candidate should have solid background and demonstrated research experience in mathematical optimization methods, especially in topology optimization, robust optimization, sensitivity analysis, and machine learning techniques. Hands-on experiences with the implementation of optimization algorithms, machine learning and deep learning methods are highly desirable. Knowledge and experience with electric machine principle, design and finite-element analysis is a strong plus. Senior Ph.D. students in related expertise are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible and the duration is about 3-6 months. This internship is preferred to be onsite at MERL, but may be done remotely where you live if the COVID pandemic makes it necessary.
