Facebook Research Intern, Computational Imaging - Optics Emphasis(PhD University Student) in Redmond, Washington
Oculus is a world leader in the design of virtual reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative research interns with a passion for technology to develop next-generation head-mounted display and imaging systems at our research location in Redmond, WA. These roles are focused on developing computational imaging methods that leverage the co-design of optical elements and image processing algorithms. In particular we welcome Masters or PhD students in computer science, optical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or similar, with a strong background in prototyping camera, sensing, and display hardware.
Our internships are sixteen (16) to twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
Develop next-generation head-mounted display and camera prototypes
Explore the application of computational imaging methods to virtual reality, emphasizing the development of advanced simulations, algorithms, and hardware capabilities
Collaborate with the larger Oculus Research team and provide creative leadership on computational display and imaging technologies
Publish research results in top-tier journals and at leading international conferences
Pursuing a Masters or PhD degree in the field of Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, or a related field
Currently enrolled in a full time degree program and returning to the program after the completion of the internship
2+ years experience in solving problems in imaging and displays emphasizing hardware prototyping
Foundation in optical design and modeling methods (e.g., knowledgeable with Matlab, Zemax, Code V, or similar)
3+ years experience with experimental optics and conducting laboratory work (i.e., demonstrated ability to construct proof-of-concept systems and to evaluate performance)
2+ years experience with scientific programming languages such as Matlab, Python, Mathematica, or similar
Interpersonal skills: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration
Ability to obtain work authorization in the United States in 2018
Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at leading workshops or conferences such as
Applied Optics, Optics Letters, Optics Express, and relevant OSA and SPIE conferences
