Meta is hiring a Research Scientist Intern, AI Applied Research - Machine Learning (PhD)

Meta AI is seeking Research Interns to join its AI for Product teams. These teams are a part of an AI Innovation Center for recommendations and collaborate closely with FAIR, other research teams (e.g. user understanding, core ML/ RL, etc.), as well as product teams for the Family of Apps (FB, IG, WhatsApp).

When you join our team, you are working to advance the state of the art in core disciplines such as: retrieval, ranking, clustering, search, and multi-modal fusion problems, often in zero-shot/ few-shot settings, natural language understanding and generation, video understanding, as well as speech & audio processing. Together with product teams, we deploy these systems at scale to recommend the most relevant content to our users by improving existing approaches and incubating novel capabilities.

The opportunities and challenges of this work are immense. Our work needs to demonstrate state of the art performance on shared tasks where available, while being applicable at Meta scale, so that we can serve our customers. Examples of our past work include sentiment analysis, temporal modeling in videos, improvements to masked auto-encoders in video and audio, etc., using both internal and external (public) data and tools.

Our team at Meta AI offers twelve (12) to twenty-four (24) weeks long internships and we have various start dates throughout the year. To learn more about our research, visit Scientist Intern, AI Applied Research - Machine Learning (PhD) Responsibilities
