Meta Reality Labs is looking for Research Engineer Interns to help us unleash human potential by eliminating the bottlenecks between intent and action. To achieve this, we’re building a practical neural interface drawing on the rich motor neuron signals that can be measured non-invasively. Our research lies at the intersection of computational neuroscience, machine learning, signal processing, statistics, biophysics, motor learning, perceptual psychophysics, 3D interfaces, AR/VR and human-computer interaction. We’re looking for people who want to shape the future of this technology and are excited about joining our collaborative research team that has grown out of the acquisition of CTRL-labs.

As a Research Engineer Intern working at RL-CTRL, you will drive cutting edge research and development for our EMG machine learning platform; create new AR/VR experiences that unlock the capabilities of our technology; productionize our research results, and work with scientists, software engineers, hardware engineers and designers to advance the company’s science and AR/VR agenda. To do so, you will need strong problem solving abilities, excellent communication skills, extensive programming experience, and a passion for efficient tools and systems.

Our internships are twelve (12) to sixteen (16) weeks long, and we have various start dates throughout the year.
