Reality Labs is committed to developing technology and shipping products that are necessary to make AR/VR compelling, pervasive and universal. We are seeking innovative and self-motivated Research Scientists with experience in building physics-based simulations to advance the current state-of-the-art Industrial Design paradigm through their research contributions. An ideal candidate will be able to translate a real-world scenario into physics-based models, with required fidelity, by leveraging/advancing the current FEA/FEM techniques and validate the simulation with appropriate real-world validation system bring-up. The candidate should also be able to effectively collaborate cross-functionally to design and execute experimental tests to validate simulation models.
Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree or equivalent experience in the field of Mechanical Engineering, Computational Physics, Computer Science, Aerospace, Multidisciplinary Design Optimization or a similar field.
Experience with numerical methods such as large-scale numerical linear algebra, numerical optimization, numerical PDEs.
Work experience with CAD softwares such as Solidworks, 3DS Max or similar.
Programming experience with C++, Python.
Publication experience in one of the following areas: Robotics, IJNME, CMME, JMPS, SIAM, ACM, biomechanics, VFX and related fields.
Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.
Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.
Perform simulation-based analysis for system and subsystem components of advanced AR and VR products.
Build custom-simulation capabilities for advanced modeling purposes using python, C++ or other programming languages.
Participate and contribute to design space exploration and product optimization activities. Collaborate with internal cross-functional research teams for data collection, data processing and experimental design.
Present regularly to large cross-functional teams and communicate progress.
Engage the wider academic community through impactful publications.
3+ years of experience, including PhD research, with any combination of the following: finite element modeling and analysis, computational mechanics, mechanical engineering, multidisciplinary design optimization techniques etc.
Experience with biomechanical modeling & simulations. Hands-on experience with commercial finite element modeling tools such as Ansys, Solidworks, COMSOL, Abaqus.
Experience with high-performance computing such as MPI, multi-threading and/or SIMD frameworks.
Experience with robotics and/or processing 3D data (meshes, point-cloud).
