Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build
community and bring the world closer together. Through our family
of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company
that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways
to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer
together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small
business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at
heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems,
and working together to empower people around the world to build
community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help
people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.
The Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) Research Team brings together a
world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to
create the future of AR and VR, which together will become as
universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are
today. These roles are focused on developing computational imaging
and graphics methods that deliver quality and performance
improvements within a virtual reality graphics pipeline. In
particular we welcome PhD students in computer science, electrical
engineering, physics, or similar, with a strong background in
prototyping 3D graphics, imaging, or sensing.Our internships are
twelve (12) to sixteen (16) weeks long and we have various start
dates throughout the year.
Develop next-generation head-mounted display prototypes.
Explore the application of computational imaging methods to
virtual reality, emphasizing the development of advanced
algorithms, simulations, and hardware capabilities.
Collaborate with the larger Oculus team and provide creative
leadership on computational imaging and graphics technologies.
Prototype the algorithms on mobile processors.
Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree
in the field of Computer Science, Optical Engineering, Electrical
Engineering, Physics, or a related field.
Ability in algorithm development for 3D graphics, displays,
cameras, or other optical sensing devices, as demonstrated by
publications, internship, work experience, coding competitions,
class work, or contributions in open source repositories (e.g
1+ years experience with solving graphics problems or inverse
problems in imaging emphasizing modeling, algorithm development,
and hardware prototyping.
2+ years experience programming in C or C++.
Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture
Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at
the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during
Intent to return to degree-program after the completion of the

Experience with machine learning based image-space graphics or
computer vision techniques, specifically ones that are real-time or
especially performant. (relighting, segmentation, depth estimation,
Experience in VR related research.
Experience in developing algorithms on compute constrained
platforms such as mobile SoCs.
Demonstrated experience via an internship, work experience, or
widely used contributions to open source projects.
Proven track record of achieving significant results as
demonstrated by first-authored publications (e.g.,
SIGGRAPH/Eurographics, CVPR/ICCV/ECCV, Optics Express, etc.).
