Research Scientist, Physically-based Simulation for Virtual Humans


Facebook Reality Labs(FRL) is a world leader in the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative researchers with a passion for technology to develop the next generation of virtual humans. The focus of this role is on full body capture and reconstruction. The position requires a combination of education and experience in computer vision, computer graphics, physics simulation or machine learning.

Required Skills:

  • Plan and execute cutting-edge research to advance the state-of-the-art in virtual humans and digital double understanding.

  • Develop new advanced technologies related to simulating convincing virtual humans.

  • Formulation of new machine learning, analysis, and simulation approaches for virtual humans.

  • Collaborate with other researchers, engineers, and 3D artists to prototype hardware and software solution, experiments and concepts that advance the entire project.

  • Minimum Qualifications:

  • PhD in the field of Computer Graphics, Physics, or Machine Learning with a proven academic track-record.

  • 3+ years experience in physically-based simulation, collision detection and resolution, particularly soft-body simulations for cloth, hair, and/or muscles in complex offline- and/or real-time-scenarios.

  • 3+ years experience implementing and developing high-performance simulation algorithms.

  • Preferred Qualifications:

  • Previous experience with simulations for high-end VFX and/or Video-Game applications.

  • Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at leading workshops or conferences such as CVPR, ECCV/ICCV, SIGGRAPH, NIPS, etc.

  • Demonstrated software engineer experience via an internship, work experience, coding competitions, or widely used contributions in open source repositories (e. g. GitHub).

  • Prior experience with designing real-time systems in C++

  • Don't Be Fooled

    The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
