Perception is at the center of our research, as it informs our work in displays, optics, rendering, and practically everything in the AR/VR system. As a Research Scientist in the Applied Perception Science team in AR/VR at Facebook in Redmond, WA, you will be tackling the scientific challenges that define cutting-edge augmented & virtual reality, addressing heretofore unanswered questions in vision science, perception, displays, and optics research. This involves conducting research at the intersection of basic and applied science, as it informs our research directions and identifies opportunities for revolutions in our metrics and experiences. We are committed to a whole-system, multidisciplinary approach to perception research and have the opportunity to both collaborate with academic institutions as well as publish and disseminate our work. Projects take advantage of internal resources in mechanical, electrical, optical, and software engineering, allowing us to confront scientific and product engineering challenges which cannot necessarily be answered with existing products or prototypes.
We are seeking a Research Scientist who is at core an expert of visual perception and is excited about doing research that helps us inform AR/VR display requirements and architectures. We seek out specific expertise in one or a combination in the following areas: spatio-temporal contrast sensitivity, color vision, motion perception, computational modeling of the visual system, visual quality metrics, visual ergonomics, efficient coding, text legibility, spatial vision, vergence/accommodation interactions, or eye-movements.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for the intersection of perception science, display, optical, and system engineering, have experience in vision science, low-level visual processes, and psychophysics.
