Reality Labs Research (RLR) brings together a world-class, cross-discipline R&D team with the shared goal of developing the next generation of augmented and virtual reality technologies. The Eye Tracking research group at RLR is seeking talented research scientists with a strong background in sensor systems research and signal processing, to build state-of-the-art eye tracking solutions for VR/AR form factor devices.

The primary responsibilities for this role are to design, simulate, and build novel near-eye imaging and sensing systems, derive theoretical models for performance on a component and system level, design and conduct experiments to verify the simulations and inform downstream development. In this role, you will collaborate closely with a multidisciplinary team spanning optics, hardware, computer vision, and machine learning.
