Reality Labs (formerly Facebook Reality Labs) focuses on delivering Mets’s vision of connecting people through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). The Reality Labs team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, speech, audio, virtual assistant, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body among many others.

The On-Device AI Research team in Reality Labs brings together a world class team of researchers working on a range of problems in AI Assistant and novel AR experiences. Our work is at the core of enabling future AR and VR products. We are seeking exceptional interns with a background in language translation/generation to join our team. We are specifically looking for candidates to work on topics such as efficient transformer architecture, on-device pre-trained language models, and semi-autoregressive/non-autoregressive language generation for translation, summarization, etc,

In this position, you will work with cross-functional teams in FRL specializing in language translation/generation solutions that can be deployed on-device under challenging computational constraints. You will collaborate with research mentors to understand the challenges and build state-of-the-art models to tackle them and then work with the software/hardware team to deploy these solutions on-device.

Our internships are twelve (12) to twenty-four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related field.

1+ years experience in developing efficient language translation/generation solutions and/or accelerating machine learning solutions for language related tasks.

Programming experience in Python.

Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.

Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.


Define, plan and execute cutting-edge deep learning research to advance language translation/generation solutions.

Collaborate with other research scientists and software engineers to develop innovative techniques for pretrained language translation and generation models that can be stored on-device.

Develop novel deep learning techniques to achieve state-of-the-art performance within the constraints of on-device and real-time execution.

Collaborate with software and hardware engineers to develop tradeoff curves for performance vs the runtime resources/constraints.

Communicate the experimental results and the recommendations clearly, both within the group as well as to the cross-functional groups.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Intent to return to degree-program after the completion of the internship/co-op.

Publication track record in audio understanding, machine learning and/or computer vision conferences. Examples include EMNLP, AAAI, ACL, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR.
