Full job description

Oculus is a world leader in the design of virtual reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative researchers with a passion for technology to develop next generation near to eye display and imaging systems at our research location in Redmond, WA. Primary responsibility is developing microLED display architectures and related technologies. This will investigate technology building blocks to enable next generation head mounted display architectures.

Oculus are looking for someone who is self-motivated and is keen to get involved across many disparate technical functions. In particular, an individual with expertise in photonic devices, and who is able to model advanced semiconductor configurations. The candidate will have a proven track record and technical expertise in microLED design, and knowledge of semiconductor growth, fabrication and test. The candidate will have deep understanding of semiconductor light sources, color conversion materials and display system.

The successful candidate will contribute to the company’s technology roadmap and will help with the design, development and fabrication of next generation light sources. To stand out from the crowd the candidate is expected to have an understanding of displays. Develop novel concepts for compound semiconductor microLED arrays and extend to custom structures for light sources
Work with third parties to research novel microLED structures
Will provide advanced optical modeling (geometrical and rigorous techniques) of light sources
Will perform test and experimentation in an independent manner and feedback results in a timely manner to other group members
Collaborate with other researchers and engineers to develop concepts that advance the entire product pipeline (hardware, firmware, middleware and applications). PhD in Optical Sciences, Physics, Electrical Engineering or related field
5+ years of experience in microLED applied research and/or product development for advanced photonic systems
Experience working in microLED technology with journal publications and/or conference publications
5000+ hours of hands-on experience of optical characterization of microLED components and sub-systems
Knowledge of III-V semiconductor processing.
Device physics understanding for microLED structure and other advanced light sources.
Experience with modeling concepts for microLED structures.
Knowledge of compound semiconductor electrical and optical test characterization techniques
Experience designing and testing nano-structures
Knowledge of sources such as lasers and LEDs, spatial light modulators, diffractive optics, optical materials and thin film optics
Knowledge and experience with color science, colorimetry, and visual optics
Experience with test automation and DOE tools such as Labview, Matlab, JMP, Octave or Mathamatica As part of our dedication to the diversity of our workforce, Facebook is committed to Equal Employment Opportunity without regard for race, color, national origin, ethnicity, gender, protected veteran status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion.
