Meta Reality Labs brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of virtual and augmented reality, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. And just as personal computers have done over the past 45 years, AR and VR will ultimately change everything about how we work, play, and connect. We are developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including optics and displays, computer vision, audio, graphics, brain-computer interface, haptic interaction, eye/hand/face/body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. Some of those will advance much faster than others, but they all need to happen to enable AR and VR that are so compelling that they become an integral part of our lives.

This intern role will work with the optics and display research team, and you will be assigned to work on projects related to polarization optics and display innovations. You can choose to work on advanced optical materials development, or novel enabling optical technologies based on polarization optics, or AR/VR/MR display systems designs.

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


3+ years experience with solid-state physics, soft materials, organic optical/electric materials, or material/process design emphasizing modeling and hardware prototyping.

Demonstrated ability with optics modeling methods (e.g. Ray-tracing, FDTD, RCWA, etc), tools (e.g., Zemax, Lumerical, COMSOL, LCDMaster, or similar), or experience in designing & modeling advanced functional materials for optics & display applications.

Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in the field of Optical Science or Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, computational imaging or a related field.

Demonstrated hands-on experience with experimental optics and/or laboratory work.

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

Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration


Develop advanced functional materials (e.g., liquid crystal, tunable nano-materials, etc.) and model their optical properties

Collaborate with the larger Meta Really Labs Research team and provide creative leadership on display and imaging technologies

Explore the potential applications for AR/VR displays enabled by advanced optical nano-structures and/or new concepts in liquid crystal optics and materials.

Collaborate with the larger Meta Reality Labs team to explore novel solution space for AR/VR devices.

The position will have an emphasis on the development of advanced simulations, novel materials, process and prototyping new concepts and the perceptual impact of those concepts

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

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Demonstrated experience via an internship, work experience, or widely used contributions to open source projects.

Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by first-authored publications.

Experience in solving partial differential equation problems.

Theoretical background in Nanophotonics and Bound States in the Continuum.

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