Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratory (MERL), located in Cambridge, MA, is the North American R&D organization for Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, a $40B global manufacturer of electrical products including elevator and escalators, HVAC systems, electrical power systems, satellites, factory automation equipment, automotive electronics and visual information systems. Controls researchers at MERL collaborate with corporate R&D laboratories, business units in Japan and academic partners around the world to develop new control algorithms and control technologies that extend the performance envelope of these systems.

For students who are interested in pursuing an exciting summer of research, please check out our internship program and learn more at facebook or @MERL_news.

MERL interns work closely with top researchers, and gain valuable industry experience – at an impressive 1:1 intern to researcher ratio. Internships are expected to lead to publications in major conferences and journals. We also recently started a PostDoc program. For  PhD graduates interested in applying please see our website www.merl.com

We offer competitive compensation and relocation assistance. Boston is a fantastic student-oriented city, home to some of the best universities in the world.

The summer season is especially lively as MERL and Boston are teeming with researchers and visitors from all over the world.
