Reality Labs has a mission to build the AR/VR ecosystem that helps people feel connected, anytime, anywhere. The Motion Sensing team within Reality Labs helps to fulfill that mission by ensuring that our devices have an accurate estimate of their orientation and position in space. Magnetic sensors play a critical role in determining the orientation of our products. We are looking for interns who have a deep understanding of magnetic materials, magnetic sensing modalities, as well as finite element analysis (FEA) tools to support the Motion Sensing team and their mission to help keep people connected.

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


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining a PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, or related field

Knowledge and experience in magnetic materials, electromagnetic fields, and or magnetometer sensing modalities

Proficient in electromagnetic simulation tools such as Ansys, Comsol, or equivalent

Experience with software development in Matlab, Python, or equivalent.

Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration

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


In this role, you will be working with the Motion Sensing and cross functional teams to develop tools to help drive product design decisions.

You will be responsible for utilizing FEA tools to simulate magnetic interactions between components.

Develop data analysis and visualization tools to extract important information from simulation results.

Use FEA to research new methods for improving sensor performance

Validation of simulation results through lab testing

Additional Requirements(额外要求)
