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 looking for an Optical Integration Scientist with passion for innovation in novel near-eye display technology to join our team. Our team mission is to identify, execute and mature immersive augmented reality (AR) display technology concepts towards beyond-state-of-the-art near eye displays for consumer devices at our R&D facilities. We are looking for a candidate with experience in optical design, fabrication, and metrology for novel photonic devices (Example: waveguide combiners, metastructures, etc). You will collaborate with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers, designers and engineers to further our understanding of AR displays. Your focus will be design validation for waveguide combiners ensuring that the combiner performance achieves the desired functionality in the final product. You will be holistically evaluating the combiner-based display encompassing multiple interdependent modules including the light engine, eyepiece optics, human vision, graphics pipeline in order to identify high-level technology risks, and effectively collaborate across areas of expertise in order to achieve an acceptable display. You will receive full support from the management and leadership team to grow your technical skills.


PhD degree or equivalent experience in the field of Engineering, Optical Sciences, Physics, or a related field.

1+ years experience in academic or industrial setting in electromagnetic modeling and analysis of nanoscale structures, metastructures, anisotropic materials, films, or holographic elements, using algorithms such as RCWA or FDTD.

1+ years of experience in academic or industrial settings with scientific programming languages such as MATLAB, Python, Mathematica, or similar.

1+ years of experience in fabrication and functional testing of novel photonic devices such as metastructures, photonic integrated circuits, holographic elements, diffractive, refractive structures, etc.

Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.


Partner with cross functional teams, technical program managers and the leadership team to devise and execute on the program priorities.

Establish fundamental understanding of as-built physical optics and identify & validate source of gaps with respect to the desired display performance.

Collaborate closely across areas of expertise to address the key technology gaps and mature technology towards productization.

Support modeling, optimization and prototyping for next-generation optics and displays.

Deploy commercial optical characterization equipment to analyze near-eye display optical components.

Develop concepts for custom optical characterization equipment (where no commercial system exists) and work collaboratively with the optomechanical and design Teams to design, build, and validate the equipment performance.

Support evaluating and characterizing optical elements and image processing pipeline & algorithms.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

3+ years of experience in design, fabrication and testing of novel optical structures such as metastructures, holographic elements, sub-wavelength diffractive structures, etc in near eye display (NED) technologies.
