Meta Reality Labs (RL) Redmond is looking for exceptional interns to help create the next generation of virtual and augmented reality. Our research focuses on true solutions to complex eye tracking problems, delivering novel technologies and algorithms fundamental to future VR and AR systems. You’ll have the unique opportunity to work with industry-leading researchers and engineers who are defining the future of VR. The ideal candidate is pursuing a PhD with a strong background in eye tracking and data analysis.

In particular, we seek candidates with expertise in the analysis and modeling of eye tracking in 3D environments to understand and predict human visual attention. We welcome candidates who strive for a deep understanding of complex systems, and a strong desire to push beyond state-of-the-art. We also welcome students with a passion for working in a strongly collaborative team that spans research across human perception, algorithms, hardware design and systems prototyping.

Our team at Reality Labs offers twelve (12) to sixteen (16) to twenty-four (24) week long internships and we have various start dates throughout the year.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in the field of Computer Science, Machine Learning, Computational Neuroscience, Experimental Psychology or a related STEM field

3+ years of experience, including undergraduate and graduate research, working in eye tracking, psychophysics, computational modeling, or related areas

High levels of creativity and quick problem solving capabilities

Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration

2+ years experience with game engines, scientific programming languages or data analysis such as Unity, Unreal, Python, MATLAB, R, and/or similar relevant approaches

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


Advance the state-of-the-art for eye movement prediction and perceptual control loops in real-world tasks and environments

Analyze large-scale temporal ego-motion data with multiple sensors to understand human-interaction in the real-world

Collaborate with researchers and engineers across diverse disciplines

Present regularly to large cross-functional teams and communicate progress

Engage the wider academic community to pursue research in this direction through publications and/or workshop/challenge/tutorial organization top-tier conferences

Additional Requirements(额外要求)
