Research Scientist Intern, CV and Machine Perception (PhD)
Location pin icon
The Reality Labs (RL) Research Team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of AR and VR, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. The Surreal Vision team is looking for the next generation of scientists and engineers to tackle the most ambitious problems in machine perception. In this internship, you will not only work on the forefront research topics present in academia and industry, but beyond you will work with a team invested in building the complete stack from sensor design to state estimation and tracking to 3D reconstruction to novel scene representations. Our internships are twelve (12) to twenty four (24) weeks long and you have the option to start at various dates throughout the year.
