Optical Scientist, Integrated Optoelectronics
Posted on: January 10, 2022
At Facebook Reality Labs, our goal is to make world-class
consumer virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. Come
work alongside industry-leading scientists and engineers to create
the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join
the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and
change the world. We are currently seeking innovative scientists
with experience designing, modeling, and prototyping advanced
optical systems for near-to-eye display applications. Successful
candidates must be comfortable working in a dynamic
cross-functional team. We are seeking a full-time researcher with
expertise in electro-optic device design, fabrication, and testing.
The candidate will have a track record in active photonics and
functional component technologies and will work closely with our
team of researchers and engineers on fabrication and packaging
technologies. Candidates must possess a fundamental understanding
of integrated lasers, photodetectors and modulators of photonic
integrated circuit and industrial fabrication and packaging.
Specifically, candidates should have experience in the fabrication
of active PIC components in CMOS compatible foundries and/or
research grade labs. The ideal candidate would demonstrate
possessing a deep understanding of the typical integration flow
required to fabricated highly integrated electrical and optical
