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

Meta is seeking Research Interns to join our Natural Language Processing teams to advance the state of the art in natural language understanding and generation. We work to deploy these systems at scale to enable people to understand and communicate with anyone, surface the most relevant content to users, and to provide an enjoyable & safe experience—no matter what language they speak.

The opportunities and challenges of this work are immense. Billions of people use our services to connect and communicate in their preferred language, but our systems need to be robust to the informal tone, slang, and typos often found in daily communication.

Our research spans multiple areas across NLP and Machine Learning, including Deep Learning/ Neural Networks, natural language understanding and generation, language modeling, pretraining, low-resource NLP, dialogue and conversation understanding, and cross-lingual and cross-domain transfer learning. As a Research Intern, you will help us apply cutting-edge NLP algorithms to a wide range of media understanding challenges at Meta.

Our teams at Meta AI offer 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 - NLP (PhD) Responsibilities
