Oculus Optical Scientist Waveguide Design Internship-PAID




awards available





The Oculus Optical Scientist Waveguide Design Internship is available to students pursuing a PhD in Optical Science, Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Material Science, or a related field. You must be authorized to work in the U.S., have an understanding of wave optics modeling such as FEM or RCWA with proven track of modeling skills, and have two+ years experience with scientific programming languages (Matlab, Python, Mathematica, or similar) to be considered for this internship. Additionally, you must have three+ years of modeling and hands-on experience in one or more of the following areas: geometrical optics, wave optics, micro/nano optics, and/or polarization holograms. Preference will be given to applicants who have experience with optical design using standard design software such as Zemax, CODE V, VirtualLab, FRED, or LightTools. As an intern, you will explore the potential applications for AR/VR displays enabled by advanced optical nano-structures/waveguide design, study any artifacts in waveguide, collaborate with the larger Facebook reality labs team to explore novel solution space for AR/VR devices, and develop next generation AR/VR display prototypes with an emphasis on both modeling and prototyping of the new concepts. This internship is offered at Redmond, WA, Sunnyvale, CA, and remotely. Average monthly compensation for a Meta Intern is $8,000.
