Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) teams are looking for exceptional interns to help us create next generation virtual and augmented reality input technologies. Join a full-stack team working on computer vision, machine learning, real-time state estimation, geometric and appearance modeling, physically-based modeling, sensor design and fusion, and human computer interaction. We are accepting applications from students interested in (but not limited to) the following areas: - Optical tracking of hands, bodies and objects and their interactions through state estimation and machine learning - Representation modeling (e.g. appearance, geometry) of hands, bodies and objects for fast simulation and tracking - Physical simulation of soft contact, deformation models for grasp - Sensor fusion (e.g. of pressure, RF, EXG, IMU) with optical tracking - Design and fast evaluation of deep neural networks - Interaction design for hands and bodies in virtual reality and augmented reality
Research Scientist Intern - Interaction Tracking (PhD) Responsibilities
  • Design and execution of algorithms in the domain of computer vision, real-time state estimation, machine learning, geometric or appearance modeling (computer graphics), sensor fusion, or HCI Software and hardware prototyping, system-building
  • Design user studies and experiments
  • Collaboration with and support of other researchers across various disciplines
  • Communication of research agenda, progress, and results
Minimum Qualifications
  • Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in Computer Science, Robotics, Applied Math or a related STEM field
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, cross-group and cross-culture collaboration
  • High levels of creativity and quick problem solving capabilities
  • Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment
  • Experience with C++ or Python
  • Experience with ML frameworks such as PyTorch, Tensorflow, etc.
Preferred Qualifications
  • Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by first-authored publications or implementation of substantial software systems
  • Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at leading workshops or conferences such as CVPR, ECCV/ICCV, BMVC, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, ICRA, IROS, RSS or SIGGRAPH/SIGGRAPH Asia
  • Experience in one or more of the following: Computer vision (e.g. e.g. tracking, pose estimation, action recognition), computer graphics (e.g. appearance, geometry, physically-based modeling), robotics (state estimation, optimal control) and machine learning (e.g. neural architecture search, domain adaptation, transfer learning)
  • Demonstrated software engineer experience via an internship, work experience, coding competitions, or widely used contributions in open source repositories (e.g. GitHub)
  • Intent to return to degree-program after the completion of the internship
