Oculus Optical Scientist Computational Rheology Internship-PAID




awards available





The Oculus Optical Scientist Computational Rheology Internship is available to fourth and fifth-year students pursuing a PhD in polymer science, material science, mechanical engineering, or a related field. You must be authorized to work in the U.S. and have three+ years experience in using/developing constitutive models for complex fluids and/or polymer melts to be considered for this internship. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience in conducting thermo-mechanical characterization of polymeric films and polymer extrusion and film casting. As an intern, you will develop and implement finite element models to capture viscoelastic behavior of polymer films under different modes of deformation, conduct lab experiments to verify the modeling results, and conduct systematic (experimental/computational) studies to identify key factors and attributors to optimize the physical properties of polymeric films for the use in AR/VR. This internship is located in Redmond, WA. Average monthly compensation for a Meta Intern is $8,000.
