meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities –
we’re just getting started.


Oculus Research is looking for an intern to help us to
invent technologies for interacting with augmented reality (AR) and virtual
reality (VR) devices. You will explore ways we can interact in AR/VR using data
streams coming from a variety of sensors, e.g. cameras, controllers, wearables.
Your research will involve the development and evaluation of novel interaction
techniques and/or input devices. You will work with world-leading collaborators
and mentors in the AR/VR, HCI, CV/ML fields.


The internship is twelve (12) to sixteen (16) weeks long. We
have various start dates throughout the year.

Required Skills:

  1. Plan
    and execute cutting-edge research to advance AR/VR interaction
    technologies in one or more of the following areas: Research in advanced
    devices, sensors, and algorithms for processing user input, Development of
    advanced AR/VR user interfaces and interaction techniques, Development of
    AR/VR interaction prototypes
  2. Collaborate
    with other researchers, engineers, and user experience researchers to prototype
    hardware and software solutions, and run experiments to advance the
  3. Work
    with leading academic researchers in the field. The work should result in
    publishable research that appears in top-tier HCI or CV/ML journals or at
    leading international conferences.
