Meta is hiring a Postdoctoral Researcher, Embodied AI (PhD)

Meta is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to join Fundamental AI Research (FAIR), a research organization focused on making significant progress in AI. Individuals in this role are expected to be recognized experts in identified research areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, and embodied AI, particularly including areas such as deep learning, graphical models, reinforcement learning, perception, natural language processing, robot control and representation learning. The ideal candidate should have a keen interest in producing new, open science to make embodied agents more intelligent. Postdoc positions are one to two year fixed-term positions.Postdoctoral Researcher, Embodied AI (PhD) Responsibilities

  • Perform fundamental and applied research to push the scientific and technological frontiers of embodied artificial intelligence (e.g. robots, egocentric personal assistants).
  • Invent/improve novel data-driven paradigms for embodied intelligence.
  • Enable long-horizon reasoning for Embodied AI tasks (navigation, mobile manipulation, instruction following, collaboration with humans) in human environments given natural-language instructions, like “clean up the house”, or “where are my glasses.”
  • Develop the next generation of simulation platforms for embodied AI research (e.g. AI Habitat).
  • Investigate paradigms that can deliver a spectrum of embodied behaviors - from simulated characters to real robots, and from short-horizon, low-level to long-horizon, high-level intelligence.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Currently has or is in the process of obtaining a PhD degree in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, a related field, or equivalent practical experience. Degree must be completed prior to joining Meta.
  • Proven track record of achieving significant results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, or publications at leading workshops, journals or conferences in Machine Learning (NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR), Robotics (ICRA, IROS, RSS, CORL), or Computer Vision (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV).
  • Experience in deep learning frameworks (such as PyTorch, TensorFlow), C, C++, Python.
  • Experience in robotics frameworks like ROS, along with experience working with robot simulations and hardware.
  • Experience in robotics research areas like task and motion planning, embodied AI, human-robot interaction, and sim-to-real.
  • Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Demonstrated research and software engineering experience via an internship, work experience, coding competitions, or widely used contributions in open source repositories (e.g. GitHub).
  • Experience with manipulating and analyzing complex, large scale, high-dimensionality data from varying sources.
  • Experience solving complex problems and comparing alternative solutions, trade-offs, and diverse points of view to determine a path forward.
  • Experience working and communicating cross functionally in a team environment.
  • Research experience in machine learning, computer vision, representation learning, optimization, statistics, applied mathematics, or data science.

About Meta

Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology. People who choose to build their careers by building with us at Meta help shape a future that will take us beyond what digital connection makes possible today—beyond the constraints of screens, the limits of distance, and even the rules of physics.

Meta is committed to providing reasonable support (called accommodations) in our recruiting processes for candidates with disabilities, long term conditions, mental health conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs, or who are neurodivergent or require pregnancy-related support.
