Research Scientist - Reality Labs

New York, NY
Reality Labs at Meta is seeking Research Scientists with experience in product-focused machine learning and signal processing research to advance our pioneering work in neuromotor interfaces, which has grown out of the acquisition of CTRL-labs. We’re building a practical interface drawing on the rich neuromotor signals that can be measured non-invasively via surface electromyography (EMG) with single motor neuron resolution. This technology could become one of the main pillars for interaction with virtual and augmented worlds. We are a multi-disciplinary team of researchers investigating the nature of human neuromotor signals, developing novel signal processing and machine learning methods to infer a user’s intent, and creating novel interaction techniques and user experiences. Help us unleash human potential by removing the bottlenecks between user intent and action.
Research Scientist - Reality Labs Responsibilities
  • Research and develop Deep Learning or other computational models.
  • Design methods, tools and infrastructure to analyze and leverage rich multimodal data sets.
  • Set technical direction for a project of 2-3 researchers and engineers.
  • Help transition and deliver our work from research into product.
  • Adapt standard machine learning methods to best leverage modern parallel environments (e.g. distributed clusters, multicore SMP, and GPU)
Minimum Qualifications
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Statistics/Mathematics.
  • Experience with developing machine learning models at scale from inception to business impact.
  • Programming experience in Python and hands-on experience with frameworks such as PyTorch.
  • Exposure to architectural patterns of large scale software applications.
  • Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.
Preferred Qualifications
  • First-author publications at peer-reviewed AI conferences (e.g. NeurIPS, CVPR, ICML, ICLR, ICCV, ACL, and ICASSP).
  • Experience in software engineering in industry.
  • Experience bringing machine learning-based products from research to production.

About Meta
Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology. People who choose to build their careers by building with us at Meta help shape a future that will take us beyond what digital connection makes possible today—beyond the constraints of screens, the limits of distance, and even the rules of physics.
