Optical Scientist Intern, Organic Solid-State Materials (PhD)
Posted on: January 16, 2022
Facebook Reality Labs brings together a world-class team of
researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of
virtual and augmented reality, which together will become as
universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are
today. And just as personal computers have done over the past 45
years, AR and VR will ultimately change everything about how we
work, play, and connect. We are developing all the technologies
needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including
optics and displays, computer vision, audio, graphics,
brain-computer interface, haptic interaction, eye/hand/face/body
tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. Some of those
will advance much faster than others, but they all need to happen
to enable AR and VR that are so compelling that they become an
integral part of our lives.Our internships are twelve (12) to
sixteen (16), or twenty-four (24) weeks long and we have various
start dates throughout the year.
- Develop next generation AR/VR display prototypes with an
emphasis on both modeling and prototyping new concepts.
- Explore the applications of one of the following polarization
concepts, nano or micro-optics, or organic electronics.
- The position will have an emphasis on the development of
advanced simulations, novel materials, process and prototyping to
prove new concepts and the perceptual impact of those
- Collaborate with the larger Facebook Really Labs Research team
and provide creative leadership on display and imaging
- The type of work should be publishable research results in
top-tier journals and at leading international conferences.
- Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree
in the field of Material Science, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry,
Polymer Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, or a related
- 3+ years experience with solid-state physics, soft materials,
organic optical/electric materials, or material/process design
emphasizing modeling and hardware prototyping.
- 3+ years experience with experimental materials/process and
conducting laboratory work (i.e., demonstrated ability to construct
proof-of-concept systems and to evaluate performance).
- 2+ years experience with scientific programming languages such
as Matlab, Python, Mathematica, or similar Interpersonal
experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.
- 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
- 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. 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. Facebook is proud to be
