Job(岗位): Research Scientist Intern, Body Capture, Reconstruction and Understanding (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 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.

Research Topics:

* Virtual humans, avatar creation

* Full body capture, understanding and reconstruction including dynamic deformations of soft tissues, cloth and hair

* Markerless motion capture, body shape inference, dense correspondence learning

* Neural representations and deep implicit models

* Multi-view stereo reconstruction, dynamic surface reconstruction, non-rigid registration

* Deep learning applied to image, depth and 3D data

* Realistic rendering, perceptual evaluation
