Research Intern, Computational Imaging - Optics Emphasis(PhD University Student)

Internship - Engineering, Tech & Design | Redmond, WA

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.

Responsibilities

  • 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

Minimum Qualifications

  • 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

Preferred Qualifications

  • 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
