Reality Labs (RL) Research is dedicated to the research and development required to bring virtual and augmented reality to billions of people around the world. In our lab, we aspire to a vision of social VR and AR, where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions. We are looking for an exceptional researcher with a proven track record in using machine learning for solving computer vision problems (e.g., architecture search or model compression for neural networks of image/video generation or classification, generative models for image and videos) as well as an outstanding software engineer who can prototype invented algorithms. As a Research Scientist at RLR, you will pursue research, and work with other Computer Vision and Machine Learning Researchers and Engineers to solve challenges at the forefront of computer vision that transform virtual reality from dream to reality. We’re looking for a creative researcher to usher in the next era of human-computer interaction by solving open and exciting computer vision problems.
