MIT Lincoln Laboratory CO-OP Student in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Human Health & Performance Systems Group focuses on objective, technology-based human-centered solutions to measure, model and modify cognitive and physiological function for enhancement, sustainment, or recovery. This goal is accomplished through three broad technical areas: health and resilience monitoring, trauma care, and performance enhancement. Research in all areas includes capability gap analysis, advanced sensing, machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms, biologically-based modeling, prototyping, system integration, and field testing of systems to monitor the human state, predict outcomes, and intervene to improve health and performance. Typical goals include increasing physical, cognitive and psychological performance and resilience of end users in their operational environments; measuring, modeling, and modifying the brain to mitigate neurotrauma and neurodegeneration of end users after exposure; and developing human-machine interfaces for enhanced end user performance and communication within groups. This highly interdisciplinary group draws on skills from biology, physiology, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, biosignal processing, engineering, machine learning and artificial intelligence, computer science, physics, and medical research areas. Primary government sponsors and partners are in the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, NASA, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation.
The Human Health & Performance Systems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory seeks a co-op student to support a diverse multidisciplinary team that is developing and prototyping novel capabilities for physiological and cognitive monitoring as well as AI-enabled medical devices. The main responsibilities of the individual include embedded programing with microcontrollers, mechanical design, rapid prototyping using 3D printers, and basic circuit design. Other aspects of the work include assistance with prototype testing and pilot data collection. The individual will work closely with experts in hardware and circuit design, signal and image processing, and algorithm development.
Candidates should be working toward or already have a BS or MS degree in one of the following or a related field: Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering, or Computer Science. Proficiency in MATLAB and SolidWorks is required. Experience in microcontrollers and one or more common programming languages such as C or Python is strongly desired. Knowledge of circuit design is a plus.
