The Meta Reality Labs 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. 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 sixteen (16), or twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.


3+ years of modeling and hands-on experience in one or more of the following areas: geometrical optics, wave optics, micro/nano optics,photonic devices and/or polarization holograms.

2+ years experience with scientific programming languages such as Matlab, Python, Mathematica, or similar.

In-depth understanding of wave optics modeling such as FEM or RCWA with proven track of modeling skills.

Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.

Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration

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


Explore the potential applications for AR/VR displays enabled by advanced optical nano-structures and waveguide design

Collaborate with broader Meta RL research teams to develop novel solutions to displays in various environments

Collaborate with the larger Meta reality labs team to explore novel solution space for AR/VR devices

Optical design and modeling of waveguides to meet system requirements

Study any artifacts in waveguide

The type of work should be publishable research results in top-tier journals and at leading international conferences

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Experience with optical design using standard design software such as Zemax, CODE V, VirtualLab, FRED, or LightTools.

Demonstrated experience via an internship, work experience, or widely used contributions to open source projects.

Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by first-authored publications.

Intent to return to a degree-program after the completion of the internship/co-op.
