The RL Research Team at Meta pioneers research into new technologies to solve most challenging engineering problems for next generation AR, VR, and MR products.

We are developing next generation XR interfaces that are essential to enable the Metaverse. These devices need to be soft and conformable to provide seamless user experiences, yet require high-density integration of high-performance electronics to enable all the essential functions in a wearable form factor. The team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers and engineers to address the integration and manufacturing challenges to create the future of XR interactions, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in the field of Physics, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or similar.

2+ years experience working on material deposition techniques and material characterization.

1+ years experience working on DC and Pulsed DC/RF sputter deposition techniques.

Experience in developing and optimizing processes.

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.


Research and develop material sputtering processes for next-generation flexible/stretchable hybrid electronics.

Design of experiment for process space optimization and material characterization using techniques like AFM, SEM, 4 point probe, filmetrics.

Perform data analysis to inform device design/process iterations.

Statistical data management and analysis to inform fabrication infrastructure build.

Collaborate with the cross-functional research team, present and share results with key stakeholders.

The work should be publishable research results in top-tier journals and at leading international conferences in materials science.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Research experience with polymer sputtering.

Research experience with flexible and/or stretchable electronics.

Experience in deposition tool hardware troubleshooting, DOE and SPC tools.

Sound understanding of device physics, process integration and device fabrication.

Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications in leading journals such as APL, ACS, Nature, Science, IOP, Advanced materials, Wiley-VCH etc. or at leading workshops or conferences such as MRS, APS, ACS, IEDM, DRC, EMC, ISSP, AVS etc.

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