Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) brings together a world-class R&D team of researchers, developers, and engineers to build the future of connection within virtual and augmented reality. We're developing all the technologies needed to enable breakthrough AR glasses and VR headsets. At the Pittsburgh lab, we aspire to a vision of social VR and AR, where people are able to interact with each other across distances in a way that is indistinguishable from in-person interactions. As a Research Scientist at FRL Pittsburgh, you will be solving challenges at the forefront of computer vision and machine learning. You will work alongside top researchers, engineers, and artists collaborating together on the innovation necessary to make that vision a reality. You will be expected to push forward the frontiers of research and publish your work at leading venues in the field. We want people who work well across disciplines, can brainstorm big ideas, and are excited to work in new technology areas. The... ideal candidate will have research experience in machine learning applied to waveform/speech synthesis, acoustic modeling, and audio-visual learning. Knowledge of spatial audio processing is a plus.
