Facebook researchers actively partner with university faculty, post-doc, and doctoral students to explore and solve many of the deep technical challenges facing our industry today.

We engage in over 100 academic research collaborations across various engineering disciplines each year. Collaborators work directly with relevant research, engineering, and product teams to discuss research directions, learn about ongoing Facebook research, access unique datasets and explore deep technical challenges.

Research collaborations require:

  • At least one faculty Principle Investigator (PI) who assigns post-doc and doctoral students to the project.
  • A Facebook sponsor who agrees to work with the faculty PI.
  • A clear project outline, with timeline for completion, and proposed outcomes.
  • An IP agreement between Facebook and the University.

The best way to collaborate with a Facebook researcher is to connect with them over publication and conference discussions. For additional questions emailĀ academicrelations@fb.com.
