Visiting Researchers and Postdocs

Bridging the gap between industry and academia

We offer limited opportunities for visiting researchers, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty on sabbaticals to bring their expertise, curiosity, and creativity to Meta.

Applications and proposals are accepted for recognized experts in research areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational statistics and applied mathematics, particularly in areas such as deep learning, graphical models, reinforcement learning, computer perception, natural language processing and data representation. Our ideal candidate will have a keen interest in producing new science and will join our research teams, actively contributing to ongoing projects. Each term is determined on a case-by-case basis and requires sponsorship from a Meta research team.
