The Reality Labs (RL) Research Team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of AR and VR, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. The Surreal Vision team is looking for the next generation of scientists and engineers to tackle the most ambitious problems in machine perception.

In this internship, you will not only work on the forefront research topics present in academia and industry, but beyond you will work with a team invested in building the complete stack from sensor and optics design to fundamental machine learning and computer vision algorithms to the applications driving LiveMaps and the Metaverse. Our working style is fast-paced, focused on rapid progress and audacious exploration of novel solutions for fundamental problems.

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