Research Intern, Full Body Capture and Reconstruction (PhD)

Facebook Reality Labs(FRL) is a world leader in the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative interns with a passion for technology to develop the next generation of virtual humans. The focus of our roles is on full body capture and reconstruction.

Research Topics:
* Markerless motion capture
* Dense 3D surface deformation and reconstruction
* Statistical deformation models
* Physics based animation and simulation
* Applied machine learning
* Differentiable rendering
* Point cloud representations

Our internships are twelve (12) to sixteen (16) or twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.


  • Design and execution of algorithms
  • Prototyping, building and analysis of experimental systems
  • Collaboration with and support of other researchers across various disciplines
