Redmond, WA
At Reality Labs Research (RL-R), our goal is to explore, innovate and design novel interfaces and hardware subsystems for the next generation of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality experiences. We are driving research towards a vision of an always-on augmented reality device that can enable high-quality contextually relevant interactions across a range of complex, dynamic, real-world tasks in natural environments; to achieve this goal, our team draws on and fundamentally advances methods and knowledge from artificial intelligence, multimodal machine learning, computer vision, and signal processing. We are looking for a skilled and motivated researcher with expertise in multimodal machine learning and large scale multimodal representation learning. More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities.
AI Research Scientist, Multimodal Machine Learning Responsibilities
  • Define, collaborate, and execute on research that pushes forward the state of the art in multimodal context/content understanding.
  • Work collaboratively with other research scientists to develop novel solutions and models in service of contextualized AI for augmented reality.
  • Working on curation of large datasets across many modalities (e.g., vision, audio, eye gaze, IMU, sEMG).
  • Leading experimental design, implementation, evaluation, and reporting results to enable new capabilities for multimodal machine learning models.
  • Play a significant role in healthy cross-functional collaboration.
Minimum Qualifications
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, relevant technical field, or equivalent practical experience.
  • PhD degree or equivalent experience in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering or a related field
  • Publication record in machine learning, AI, computer science, statistics, applied mathematics, data science, or related technical fields
  • 3+ years of experience in one or more of the following areas: Deep Learning, NLP, Multimodal, Computer Vision, Speech
  • 3+ years of experience developing end-to-end ML pipelines with a focus on dataset preprocessing, model development and evaluation, software integration, and real-time deployment
  • Experience writing software (Python and C/C++) and executing complex machine learning experiments
  • Research experience in one or more of these areas: NLP, computer vision, Multimodal, Speech
Preferred Qualifications
  • Publication record in AI conferences like NeurIPS, EMNLP, ACL, ICCV, CVPR, ICML, NAACL, ICLR, Interspeech, ICASSP.
  • Programming experience in Python and hands-on experience with frameworks such as PyTorch.
  • Experience with developing machine learning models at scale from inception to deployment.
