  • Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we’re building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we’re creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities we’re just getting started.Oculus Research is building on our expertise in virtual reality systems to begin the development of augmented reality (AR). This moves us from a technology whose primary application has been in games and entertainment to one that could replace the smart phone and computers as the primary device for communication and work as well as entertainment. We are currently seeking innovative interns with a passion for applied and fundamental research in vision science and physiological optics to focus on the development of AR systems. Wearable AR devices present a new set of perceptual challenges. Oculus research is seeking research interns with expertise in low-level vision, binocular vision, physiological optics, accommodation, or vision modelling to advance AR technologies.

    Responsibilities:

    • Theoretical and experimental research in vision science and/or physiological optics
    • Collaboration with and support of other researchers across engineering and scientific disciplines
    • Communication of research agenda, progress and results.

    Mininum Qualifications:

    • Pursuing a Masters or PhD degree in Cognitive Neuroscience, Vision Science, Physiological Optics, Bioengineering, Optometry, or a related field
    • Strong background in experimental methods
    • Must be currently enrolled in a full-time degree program and returning to the program after the completion of the internship
    • Excellent interpersonal skills, cross-group, and cross-culture collaboration
    • High levels of creativity and quick problem-solving capabilities
    • Proven track record of achieving significant results
    • Ability to obtain work authorization in the United States in 2018

    Preferred Qualifications:

    • Demonstrated software engineering experience via an internship, work experience, coding competitions or PhD papers
    • Knowledge of psychophysics, signal processing, and/or simulation expertise
    • Ability to design and perform psychophysical experiments
