Job(岗位): Research Scientist Intern, Body, Cloth and Hair Modeling and Simulation (PhD)

Type(岗位类型): Research

Citys(岗位城市): Zurich, Switzerland

Date(发布日期): 2023-3-19


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. We are developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including computer vision, graphics, body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. The Virtual Humans team in Sausalito, CA, Redmond, WA and Zurich, CF work on cutting-edge research and development focusing on virtual people and presence. We envision a world where people connect across vast distances so our roles focus on capturing, evaluating and modeling the full human body shape and motion. We are currently seeking innovative interns with a passion for technology to develop the next generation of virtual humans.

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

Research Topics:

* Physics-based simulation for body, cloth and hair

* Deformable object modeling, volumetric representation

* Full body animation and tracking

* Non-rigid registration

* Differentiable simulation, neural representations

* Applied machine learning

* Realistic rendering, perceptual evaluation
