At Reality Labs Research (RLR), we pioneer research into new technologies to explore, innovate, and design user interface technologies that will drive the next generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. 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 Soft Wearable Technologies (SWT) 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.

As a Research Scientist Intern at RLR, you will partner with expert research scientists, hardware engineers and software developers to build groundbreaking prototypes and create the technology that makes XR universal. You will tackle interesting technical challenges in human-computer interaction to revolutionize how people interact with computing devices. Step into the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.


Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, or related field with soft matter focus.

3+ years experience with hardware prototyping, soft wearable technologies, building functional garments, electrode development and characterization or material formulation.

3+ years of experience conducting research in flexible skin electronics devices including design, fabrication and Bio/EE signal analysis.

Interpersonal skills: cross-group collaboration 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 the next generation of soft wearable technologies with an emphasis on epidermal electronics, flexible electronics, and conformal electronics that feature both mechanical conformality and high-density integration.

Collaborate with the larger Reality Labs team and provide creative solutions to challenges in soft wearables and biopotential sensing technologies.

Design, prototype and characterize novel skin electronics with data analysis to inform device design/fabrication iterations.

The position will have an emphasis on fundamental scientific and engineering questions related to the undefined behavior of soft wearable technologies to inform new concepts and the perceptual impact of those concepts.

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 bioengineering and materials science.

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 grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at leading conferences or journals such as Nature Electronics, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Science Advances etc.

Familiarity with biopotential technologies and literature.

Familiarity with novel electrode materials and rapid prototyping techniques.

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