Job(岗位): Research Scientist, Input and Interaction (PhD)

Type(岗位类型): User Experience

Citys(岗位城市): New York, NY

Date(发布日期): 2022-9-9


At Reality Labs (RL), our role is to explore cutting edge input hardware and realize novel user interfaces for the next generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. We are searching for a skilled and motivated Research Scientist to join our team, whose mission is to unleash human potential by bridging the gap between user intent and system action.

We are specifically looking for a scientifically-minded candidate with experience in HCI and interactive computing. Our ideal candidate can go from ideation to implementation of data-driven prototypes with ease, and is looking for a work environment with access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities. More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of user researchers, prototypers, scientists, designers, and engineers to realize the potential of novel inputs and interfaces for AR/VR.
