Facebook Reality Labs Research (FRL-R) brings together a world-class R&D team of researchers, developers, and engineers to build the future of connection within virtual and augmented reality. We’re developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses.

The technology that is being developed within the Surreal team at FRL-R is a new generation of end-to-end real-time 3D scene understanding systems working across novel mobile sensor design, sensor fusion, state estimation, computer vision, large-scale reconstruction and localization, as well as large-scale online inference and optimization. We aim to provide a contextual layer to the real world via indexing all “things” and “stuff” an observer views, and eventually connecting that to personal and world knowledge graphs.

The Surreal team is seeking an experienced Research Scientist Manager to lead and support a group of world-class researchers in order to work on project Aria and to support this initiative.
