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 to work with our research teams on significant projects.

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

Postdoc Opportunities

Limited postdoc opportunities are offered at Meta. General postdoc positions are posted on the Meta Careers site. For postdoc opportunities at Meta AI, see the following information.

Meta AI postdoc opportunities

Postdocs engage with researchers at Meta AI to develop and implement a research agenda, publish world-class research, and make an impact in the external research community. They will develop an ability to identify highly impactful projects in a complex and unexplored domain, gain valuable experience in a top-tier research institute, publish academic papers, and build their reputation across the world.

AI research areas may include Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Speech and Audio, Conversational AI, Theory, Reinforcement Learning, Robotics, Graphics, Human and Machine Intelligence, or other similar fields.
