Company: MIT Lincoln Laboratory


The Human Health & Performance Systems Group develops human-centered technologies to overcome operational challenges and to enhance human capability in domains of interest to national security. Our research programs focus on innovative and objective solutions in the areas of integrated wearable systems, human-machine teaming, enhanced communications, neurocognitive analytics, and medical technologies. Our group is highly interdisciplinary and includes scientific experts in physiology, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, biomechanics, computer science, engineering, and physics. Our core technical competencies include system-level modeling and gap analysis, advanced sensing and signal processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, computational modeling, hardware and software prototyping, model-based systems engineering, and human data collection in laboratory and field environments.

Job Description


Our team is looking for a Co-Op student with an interest in solving challenging time series analysis problems for physiological status monitoring from body-worn sensing. Through this opportunity, you will work with a multi-disciplinary team consisting of engineers, scientists, and clinicians to prepare and process large biomedical datasets and develop and evaluate physiological analysis and machine learning algorithms. The primary focus of this work will be on developing advanced algorithms for estimating health from unstructured, free-living data. We are looking for students who are self-motivated and interested in time series analysis, machine learning, and physiological monitoring.


  • Currently pursuing a B.S., M.S., M.Eng., or Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or other relevant degree
  • Python, MATLAB, and biomedical signal processing experience (coursework or practical)


Selected candidate will be subject to a pre-employment background investigation and must be able to obtain and maintain a Secret level DoD security clearance.
