Research Scientist, CV & Machine Perception

Website Meta

The Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) Research Team brings together a world-class team of researchers, developers, and engineers to create the future of AR and VR, which together will become as universal and essential as smartphones and personal computers are today. The Surreal Vision group at FRL Research is seeking exceptional Research Scientists to solve the next generation of research challenges on the path to building future machine perception enabled technologies. This role focuses on formulating a new generation of end-to-end real-time 3D scene understanding systems working across novel mobile sensor design, sensor fusion, state estimation, computer vision, large-scale reconstruction and localization, as well as large-scale online inference and optimization.
Research Scientist, CV & Machine Perception Responsibilities
  • Plan and execute cutting-edge research and development to advance the state-of-the-art in machine perception, mapping, reconstruction and localization, as well as 3D scene understanding across optical/inertial/wireless sensing systems
  • Collaborate with other researchers and engineers across machine perception teams at Facebook to develop experiments, prototypes, and concepts that advance the state-of-the-art in AR/VR systems
  • Work with the team to help design, setup, and run practical experiments and prototype systems related to large-scale long-duration sensing and machine reasoning
Minimum Qualifications
  • Experience with real world system building and data collection, including design, coding (C++) and evaluation (C++/Python)
  • Hands-on experience implementing 3D computer vision algorithms, Sensor Fusion, Reconstruction, Object Tracking, Mapping, and Image Processing
  • PhD in the following fields: Computer Vision, Robotics, State Estimation, 3D Reconstruction, Object Tracking, Physics based models, or a related field
Preferred Qualifications
  • Experience in real-time computer graphics or modern GPU programming (CUDA, OpenGL, OpenCL)
  • Experience with designing (products or open-source) software for inertial/optical/wireless sensing devices
  • Experience working in a Unix environment
