Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories, located in Cambridge, conducts corporate research and development for the group of companies ultimately owned by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation in North America as well as for Mitsubishi Electric Corporation itself. MERL is home to some of the world's leading experts in such areas as electronics and communications, multimedia, data analytics, computer vision, mechatronics, and algorithms.
As one of the world's longest-running research labs, Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs has earned 1,120 patents. Most recently these patents were awarded for such advances as multiple spotlight synthetic radar imaging using random beam steering, antenna selection with frequency-hopped sounding reference signals, antenna selection with frequency-hopped sounding reference signals, and linearizing power amplifiers.
"The overriding vision of Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories is to deliver innovation that has a lasting impact on the world," said Richard Waters, Ph.D., president, CEO and founding member of Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories. "I'm proud of the cutting edge technological advances we've developed in our 25-year history."
The research lab attracts brilliant minds from throughout the world and currently offers professional opportunities for research scientists and a postdoctoral researcher. In addition to these professional positions, the research lab is currently recruiting for 13 internships that offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to participate in exciting research in a stimulating environment, with the objective that their work lead to publication. Research areas for these internships include machine learning artificial intelligence, optimization algorithms for model predictive control, coherent optical transmission systems, and nonholonomic planning and control. Qualified candidates are invited to explore these internship opportunities.
