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 currently seeking an innovative scientist with experience designing and modeling advanced optical systems for near-to-eye display applications. This is a full-time position and requires an advanced degree in optical engineering, physics, or similar, and a strong background in polarization optics, optical system design and innovation. Successful candidates must be comfortable working in a dynamic cross-functional team.


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

Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience.

Experience with methods of light propagation, both in wave and ray domains as well as in mixed models.

3+ years of industry experience in applied research and/or product development of optical systems requiring any combination of the following: imaging, illumination, physical optics, polarization optics, LC optics, stray light analysis or holography.

3+ years of industry experience with laboratory work in setting up of optical systems, and experience with optical metrology methods.

3+ years of industry experience with polarization optics and physical optics modeling tools, such as LCD-Master, MATLAB, Python, COMSOL, and methods such as Jones Matrix, FDTD, or RCWA, etc.


Develop new concepts and technologies for next generation Near-Eye Displays (NEDs). These areas could include polarization optics, physical optics, optical system design, and optical metrology.

Design, model, and/or prototype critical technologies to drive system performance and to validate achievable visual experience.

Research and develop emerging concepts in imaging systems and optical systems in support of NEDs.

Support evaluation and characterization of optical components, and system integration.

Collaborate with the larger research team to explore concepts, perform trades and drive optical system development to create compelling experiences.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

5+ years of industry experience in applying existing and emerging optical technologies, and incubating an idea from concept validation to system improvement of NEDs.

5+ years of industry experience in one or more of following fields: 1) polarization holograms design and/or prototyping, 2) waveguide design, 3) polarization optics metrology, 4) Electro- optics metrology.

3+ years of experience with polarization aberration analysis and polarization ray tracing of optical systems.

Strong interpersonal skills to support cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.

Experience mentoring junior engineers and researchers in the team.
