At Meta’s Reality Labs Research, our goal is to make world-class consumer virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. Come work alongside industry-leading scientists and engineers to create the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world. Optics & Display Research (O&DR) is seeking an innovative Laser Research Scientist who will be responsible for the research and development of novel laser components for AR and VR display applications. You will lead the effort of exploring new concepts in laser diode technologies for potential use in AR and VR. You will be responsible for working with other teams to provide proof of concept viability and demonstrations to product teams for future commercialization. Successful candidates must be comfortable working in a dynamic, cross-functional team.
