Meta Reality Labs Redmond is looking for exceptional interns to help create the next generation of virtual and augmented reality. Our research focuses on comprehensive solutions to complex 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.

In particular, Meta Reality Labs Research is looking for motivated interns for device research in eye tracking applications. This internship project involves detailed electrical/mechanical modeling, package modeling, design of the MEMS scanner for the next-gen eye-tracking and steering display technologies. The MEMS type would include optical micromirror, optical mirror array, and acoustic MEMS devices. Scope of the project includes modeling and optimization of the stress level/aperture size/overall chip size of the MEMS device.

Our internships are twelve (12) to sixteen (16) to twenty-four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
