Job Description

Internship opportunity available at PARC in System Failure Modeling, Monitoring, Prognostics, Diagnostics, and Action Recommendations

About the Job

PARC is working on innovative analytics projects within the Analytics for Condition Evaluation of System (ACES) research area to model failures in complex systems, monitor the health condition of devices, enabling accurate inferences about their state, and deliver recommendations for decision support. The analytics are focused on fusion of multiple sources of data from complex devices; fusion of physics-based modeling and machine learning approaches, system insight generation, and accurate "actionable" recommendations. The ACES research area is a growing group of researchers within PARC's System Sciences Lab, with world-class strengths in diagnostics, prognostics, fleet management, data analytics, model-based design and manufacturing of complex engineering systems. The work in ACES covers a broad range of technology maturity, from abstract algorithm formulation all the way down to embedded software implementation on physical hardware platforms that span various application domains such as intelligent transportation systems, manufacturing, energy, heavy machinery, power electronics, and cloud computing.


- Assist in designing, developing, and delivering innovative approaches, algorithms, methods, and models as needed for system analysis, state monitoring, prediction, and recommendations

- Preprocessing data (data cleaning and feature extraction)

- Design simulation and deliver software prototypes

- Document/present findings and results


- Graduate students or undergraduate students completed at least 3 years of study, in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related fields

- Background in system modeling, monitoring, prognostics, diagnostics, machine learning, or optimization

- Experience with prognostics and health management (PHM) concepts, methods, and tools

- Hands-on software and algorithm development

- Familiarity with Python, Modelica, or Matlab is a plus


We offer a very competitive salary package and full benefits (medical, dental, vision, life & disability insurance, 401K). PARC employees enjoy the use of onsite health & fitness center and collegial dining at our onsite cafeteria. The PARC campus is in a spacious modern building in close proximity to the resources and opportunities of Silicon Valley and benefits from nearby leading universities such as Stanford and Berkeley. It is also close to many amenities, top schools, and outdoor activities (see http://www.parc.com/about/culture.html). PARC provides a highly diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer (see http://www.parc.com/about/careers/).
