The Meta Reality Labs (FRL) Research Team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of virtual and augmented reality, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. And just as personal computers have done over the past 45 years, AR and VR will ultimately change everything about how we work, play, and connect. We are developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including optics and displays, computer vision, audio, graphics, brain-computer interfaces, haptic interaction, eye/hand/face/body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. Some of those will advance much faster than others, but they all need to happen to enable AR and VR that are so compelling that they become an integral part of our lives.

Our internships are twelve (12) to twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.


Currently has, or in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in the field of Electrical Engineering, Physics, Optical Science or Engineering, or a related field.

Familiarity with mathematical and practical aspects of photonic devices or semiconductor physics.

Familiarity with High-Speed Optoelectronics would be an advantage.

Demonstration of laser diode modeling.

3+ years experience with optoelectronics and/or electrical engineering.

Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.
