Research Intern, Audio (University Grad)

Research | Redmond, WA

Facebook Reality Labs brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of virtual and augmented reality, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. And just as personal computers have done over the past 45 years, AR and VR will ultimately change everything about how we work, play, and connect. We are developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets, including optics and displays, computer vision, audio, graphics, brain-computer interface, haptic interaction, eye/hand/face/body tracking, perception science, and true telepresence. Some of those will advance much faster than others, but they all need to happen to enable AR and VR that are so compelling that they become an integral part of our lives. We are accepting applications from students interested in (but not limited to) the following areas: Audio Signal processing Microphone array processing Acoustics Hearing sciences Speech Psychoacoustics CPU-GPU parallelization Machine learning Numerical solvers Monte Carlo simulations Our internships are sixteen (16) to twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.
