Position Description: 

The internship program at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) gives students excellent opportunities to work in an industrial research lab environment side-by-side with world-class researchers. This program emphasizes close collaboration with a particular researcher or members of a small team. MERL considers graduate students from all over the world. As many of our projects benefit from specialized knowledge in a given field, graduate students pursuing a Ph.D. typically fill the majority of internship openings.

MERL is currently seeking an intern to research and develop new methods for coding and compressing 3D point clouds. The ideal candidate will have relevant expertise in computer graphics representations and compression, and in lossy or lossless image or video compression. Familiarity with processing point cloud data related to mobile mapping, laser scanning, or virtual reality would be a plus. Candidates working toward a PhD in related fields such as Electrical Engineering or Computer Science are encouraged to apply. This is a paid internship with a duration of approximately 3 to 6 months.

Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to opening MM1012 at http://www.merl.com/internship/openings.php.
