At Facebook Reality Labs, we are inventing the future. We bring together a world-class team of researchers, developers, & engineers to build the future of connection within virtual and augmented reality. The right candidate will be an effective communicator, passionate about understanding people, curious about the evolving complex relationship between human sensory, perceptual, and cognitive systems and use of emerging technologies. As a Research Scientist at FRL for user safety, you are expected to have breadth and depth of scientific background in human perception, cognition, motor control and movement. You will be leveraging this in service of defining, assessing and enhancing the form, function and dynamics of our hardware and software. You must be a data expert, and able to creatively develop metrics for investigating novel challenges in use of AR. You will demonstrate your ability to break down ambiguous problems and master research methods, including design of experiments, expert review, psychophysics and threshold detection, and relevant health & safety research approaches. While strong candidates will have hands-on experience in conducting in-depth studies and improving product safety under an industrial or corporate setting, we are looking for researchers that take user safety in their heart for product design. A successful candidate will demonstrate the capability in driving insights into actionable user safety measures, and collaborate closely with cross functional partners to help shape critical product and technology decisions across the product design and development life-cycle. You will work across multi-disciplinary hardware and software teams to push the boundaries of our AR products while enhancing user safety. Ultimately, your expertise and ingenuity in research must do more than just contribute to knowledge and assessment – you must also be skilled at driving measurable positive impact on the product safety and user experience.
