Facebook Reality Labs

Facebook Reality Labs is looking for graduate students who conduct research on vision science (with diverse backgrounds) to join us for a 16-24 week internship in 2019. Internships are open to graduate students of all levels but preferably geared towards students who have already passed their qualification exam.

The research group is composed of a majority of researchers and a few engineers and is inherently multidisciplinary: vision scientists, optical scientists, computational imaging researchers, graphics researchers, electrical and mechanical engineers. At the intersection of hardware and software design, you can find a few examples of the published work here:
