As an Optical Scientist at Meta, you will play a critical role in developing AR/VR systems. You will focus on developing advanced optical imaging and sensing systems for near eye displays, and will become part of a team exploring new concepts through design and fast, iterative prototyping. You will explore a wide range of approaches combining electrical, mechanical, and optical techniques. We are looking for a hands-on engineer with a productive mindset who can apply their optics expertise to solve problems in creative, insightful ways. Our ideal candidate has a strong background in optical design, optical instrumentation, sensing and detection, and/or testing and metrology.


PhD degree or equivalent experience in Optics, Physics, Robotics, Applied Physics, or a related technical field.

3+ years experience with optical instrumentation, emphasizing modeling and hardware prototyping.

3+ years experience with optical design software such as Code V, or ZEMAX.

Experience with imaging or lens design.

Experience with optics technologies including one or more of the following: optical design, illumination, interferometry, physical optics, stray light analysis, radiometry, photometry, coating and thin film design.


Collaborate in a team environment across a diverse set of disciplines including Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, and Optics Design.

Collaborate with the greater Reality Labs team providing creative leadership on computational display, imaging, and sensing technologies.

Implement metrology systems for optical characterization.

Develop test strategies for optical sensing systems.

Coordinate with vendors to prototype lens and optical designs.

Lead hardware calibration efforts of optical systems in collaboration with cross-functional partners.

Model optical transmission, coating performance, and stray light analysis of both individual components, optical assemblies, and full optical systems using a combination of sequential and non-sequential methods.

Model, analyze, and develop tolerances for optical distortions in both static and dynamic systems.

Publish research results in top-tier journals and at leading international conferences.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

PhD degree in Optical Design or Optical Technology Development.

Experience with diffractive optics.

3+ years experience with optical design software such as FRED, LightTools, or similar.

Experience with optical characterization of materials and devices.

Experience with vision science and perception.

Experience with physical optics and/or FDTD/RCWA simulation.

Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by product launches, grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at top-tier journals or leading conferences.

Experience working and communicating cross-functionally in a collaborative, team environment.
