Meta AR/VR Job | Research Scientist, Bioelectronics Manufacturing (PhD) | Oculus
Citys（岗位城市）: Redmond, WA
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.
We are seeking a Research Scientist to help us build a practical neural human-machine interface based on high resolution non-invasive measurement of motor neuron signals. Our research lies at the intersection of electrochemistry, biophysics, material science, neuromuscular sensing, neuroscience, machine learning, statistics, motor learning, perceptual psychophysics, and human-computer interaction. This role provides ample opportunities to work alongside an exceptional, multidisciplinary team to define and execute research to identify and answer valuable fundamental scientific questions around non-invasive biosensor interfaces with access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities. More broadly, this research scientist will collaborate with teams of scientists and engineers to translate these findings in support of technology development and testing efforts to enable breakthroughs in non-invasive neuromuscular sensing.
Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a Ph.D. in material science, engineering, chemistry, physics, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.
Demonstrated experience with multiple of: cleanroom techniques, microfabrication, polymer processing and characterization, thin film electronics, manufacturing flexible, stretchable materials, microelectronics integration, advanced micro/nano manufacturing techniques (e.g., 3D printing, electrochemical deposition).
Demonstrated characterization and validation experience using approaches such as microscopy, spectroscopy, life-cycle testing, indentation testing, electrochemistry, motion artifact testing.
4+ years experience working independently to dig into the literature to reinforce a hypothesis, then innovate, fabricate, characterize, summarize statistics of, and present on novel designs and integrations in relevant space.
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.
