The Oculus team at Facebook is helping more people around the world come together and connect through world-class VR hardware and software. With global departments dedicated to VR research, computer vision, haptics, social interaction, and more, Oculus is committed to driving the state of the art forward through relentless innovation. VR’s potential to change the world is immense—and we’re just getting started. We are seeking an Applied Research Scientist to join our User Research team and Insights organization. We are looking for a talented researcher with a background in basic and applied vision science to drive research on novel display technologies for VR. As an Applied Research Scientist at Oculus in Menlo Park CA, you will be tackling the scientific challenges that define the impact on image quality and visual comfort for VR applications. The person in this role will study the impact of display system architectures on depth perception, the detectability of display artifacts, perceived image quality, and visual comfort for VR applications. Projects take advantage of internal resources in mechanical, electrical, optical, and software engineering, allowing us to confront scientific and engineering questions which cannot be addressed with existing equipment.
