Facebook Reality Labs(FRL) is a world leader in the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative researchers with a passion for technology to develop next generation near to eye display and imaging systems at our research location in Redmond, WA.
Primary responsibility is developing hardware and related technologies as technology building blocks to enable next generation head mounted display architectures. Facebook Reality Labs is looking for someone who is self-motivated, rolls up the sleeves and is keen to get involved across many disparate technical functions. In particular, a researcher who is able to provide technical expertise in semiconductor processing, including nanofabrication plus knowledge of LED design, growth, fabrication and test.
The candidate will have knowledge of solid state lasers including design, fabrication, test and analysis. The successful candidate will contribute to the company's technology roadmap and will help with the design, development and fabrication of next generation light sources. To stand out from the crowd the candidate is expected to have an understanding of displays.
Work with third parties to develop novel LED and laser structures
Explore technologies which can be utilized in the development of next generation displays
Support modeling and experimentation with the ability to feedback results in a timely manner
Collaborate with other researchers and engineers to develop concepts that advance the entire product pipeline (hardware, firmware, middleware and applications)
Must be available to start employment on or after January 1, 2018
1000+ hours of hands-on experience in working in clean room environments and/ or optical characterization
Demonstrated results through publications and patents
