Research Scientist, Neural Interfaces
Posted on: June 12, 2021
Facebook Reality Labs
is seeking a Research Scientist to help us unleash human potential
by eliminating the bottlenecks between intent and action. To
achieve this, we’re building a practical neural interface drawing
on the rich motor neuron signals that can be measured
non-invasively with neuron-level resolution. Our research lies at
the intersection of computational neuroscience, machine learning,
signal processing, statistics, biophysics, motor learning,
perceptual psychophysics, and human-computer interaction. We’re
looking for people who want to shape the future of this technology
and are excited about joining our collaborative research team that
has grown out of the acquisition of CTRL-labs.
- Plan and execute cutting-edge applied research to advance
neural interface capabilities. Collaborate with engineering and HCI
teams to translate fundamental scientific knowledge into new
- Use quantitative research methods to define, iterate upon and
advance key areas of our research agenda.
- PhD in the field of computational neuroscience, systems
neuroscience, machine learning, physics, computer science,
electrical engineering, or related fields.
- 5+ years of experience working autonomously to design, execute,
interpret, and present research studies.
- Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the
time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during
- Research-oriented software engineering skills, including
fluency with libraries for scientific computing (e.g. SciPy
ecosystem) and machine learning (e.g. Scikit-learn, PyTorch,
- Proficiency with quantitative methods (mathematics, statistics)
and experience learning new technical knowledge and skills
- Experience with cross-domain and cross-culture
- Experience in signal processing and familiarity with real-time
- Experience with large scale cluster computing for machine
