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 Facebook 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 Facebook research team.
