Facebook Reality Labs are a world leader in the design of virtual reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative research interns with a passion for technology to develop next-generation head-mounted display and imaging systems at our research location in Redmond, WA. These roles are focused on the research and development of optical components and systems towards building advanced virtual reality display systems. In particular we welcome PhD students in optical science or engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or similar.
Our internships are twelve (12) to twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
Create new tools and methods for analyzing optical responses with novel structures and combinations. Perform trade studies of achievable performance in selected display architectures
Collaborate with the larger Oculus Research team to create and test new optics concepts for AR displays
The type of work should be publishable research results in top-tier journals and at leading international conferences.
Currently enrolled in a full time degree program and returning to the program after the completion of the internship
2+ years experience in nanophotonics, photonic crystals, plasmonics, or metamaterials
2+ years experience with scientific programming languages such as Matlab and Python
1+ years experience with electromagnetic simulation software such as Lumerical, Meep, Comsol or S4
1+ years experience with experimental optics and conducting laboratory work (i.e., demonstrated ability to construct proof-of-concept systems and to evaluate performance)
Familiar with processes and tools used for fabricating and testing nanophotonic structures and components
Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration
Able to obtain work authorization in the U.S. between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019
Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by first-authored publications
