Meta AR/VR Job | Research Scientist, Sensor Systems, Signal Processing [PhD]
Citys（岗位城市）: Redmond, WA
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 is to investigate sensor systems and derive theoretical models for performance on a component and system level, design and conduct experiments and analyze the data to validate models and inform downstream development, and develop signal processing algorithms to extract accurate and precise eye-tracking data from raw sensor measurements. This role is expected to collaborate with cross-disciplinary members of the eye-tracking research team working on novel sensor architecture design, in hardware, machine learning, and the computer vision teams to drive the sensor system research forward.
Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD in Electrical Engineering, Applied Math, Physics, Control Systems, Machine Learning, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.
2+ years experience in acoustic or optical sensor systems research.
3+ years of experience with programmatic interfacing with electronic systems for acquisition and control.
3+ years of experience with digital signal acquisition and processing.
2+ years experience in python or MATLAB.
Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture environment.
Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.
