Core Data Science (CDS) is a research and development team, working to improve Meta’s products, infrastructure, and processes. We generate real-world impact through a combination of scientific rigor and methodological innovation. Our focus is on longer-term, foundational work that addresses new opportunities and challenges across the Meta family of apps. The work we do enhances the Meta family of apps that enable billions of people to communicate with each other daily.

Core Data Science is interdisciplinary, with expertise in computer science, statistics, machine learning, economics, political science, operations research, and sociology, among many other fields. This diversity of perspectives enriches our research and expands the scope and scale of projects we can address. We deliver value through collaborative projects with other groups at Meta and with the academic community. In addition, we build and open-source technical products aligned with our areas of expertise.

We are looking for research interns to join the Product Algorithms team in Core Data Science. Core Data Science is an interdisciplinary team of quantitative scientists that aims to deliver research and innovation that fundamentally increase the magnitude of Facebook’s successes. By applying your expertise in quantitative methods, you will be empowered to drive impact across a range of products, infrastructure and operational use cases at Facebook.

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