    • MD1693: Aircraft electric propulsion system design

      MERL is seeking a motivated and qualified individual to conduct research in modeling, simulation and analysis of aircraft electric propulsion system. The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in multi-physics modeling and simulation of aircraft electrical propulsion system. Demonstrated experience in modeling and simulation software/language such as Modelica or Simscape is a necessity. Knowledge and experience of NPSS, aircraft dynamics, and aerodynamics is a definite plus. Senior Ph.D. students in aerospace and electrical engineering are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible and the duration is about 3 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.

    • MD1694: Path Planning for Articulated Vehicles

      MERL is seeking a highly skilled and self-motivated intern to work on path/motion planning of articulated vehicles.

      The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in path/motion planning, nonlinear geometric control theory, and machine learning. Excellent coding skill and strong publication records are necessary. Senior Ph.D. students in control, electrical engineering, robotics, or related areas are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible, and the expected duration is about 3 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.

    • MD1697: Integrated design of mechatronic systems

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated and qualified individual to conduct research in model-based mechatronic system design. The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in motor and drives, multi-body dynamics, design optimization, and coding skills. Demonstrated experience on hand-on mechatronic system integration, and simulation/optimization software such as Matlab is a necessity. Ph.D. students in mechanical engineering, robotics, and electrical engineering are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible and the duration is about 3 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.
