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 reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies. Our research focuses on developing comprehensive solutions to complex tracking problems and user interface technologies for AR and VR systems. You’ll have the unique opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team of industry-leading researchers and engineers, who are all working towards a common goal of defining the future of AR and VR.

The Eye Tracking (ET) Research team is seeking a talented researcher to define and advance eye movement interpretation research. In this role, you will own development of mathematical models for the oculomotor plant and use these models to improve eye tracking performance. You will advance application research that relies on eye movement interpretation, including gaze-contingent display, AR/VR input, human understanding, and health. You will lead the effort to ensure all eye movement data is captured and processed in a privacy-preserving way. You will have the opportunity to drive related research internally and through collaboration with academic or industry partners.

Join a world-class team of pioneers experimenting with breakthrough technology. Step into the adventure of a lifetime, as we make science fiction real and change the world.
