Dear Vision Science community,

Oculus Research is looking for interns.
More specifically, we’re looking for PhD students in neuroscience, cognitive psychology, or related fields with interest and expertise in:
-          Eye movements
-          Motion processing / Spatial vision
-          Contrast masking, color and binocular vision
-          Computation modeling / Perceptual decision-making

Knowledge of physiological optics, signal processing, graphics rendering, and displays is a plus.

Two members from the Oculus Research Perception Science team will be attending the IS&T conference (01/29-02/02 in Burlingame, CA). If you are interested in internship opportunities in our team and would like to meet with us to learn more about open positions, please contact:
-          James Hillis (james.hillis at oculus.com)<mailto:james.hillis at oculus.com)>
-          Kevin MacKenzie (kevin.mackenzie at oculus.com)<mailto:kevin.mackenzie at oculus.com)>

Oculus is a world leader in the design of virtual reality systems. We are currently seeking innovative interns with a passion for applied and fundamental research in fields related to perception with relevance to virtual and augmented reality.
The focus of this internship is to further perceptual research informing the design of virtual and augmented reality systems. You’ll have the unique opportunity to work with the researchers and engineers who are defining the future of these systems.
We are accepting applications from students interested in (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Visual Psychophysics - Stereopsis - Accommodation -Visual Acuity and Contrast - Eye Movements - Audiovisual integration

Our internships are twelve (12) to twenty four (24) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.

  *   Design and implementation of systems and/or experiments to explore aspects of visual perception
  *   Collaboration with and support of other researchers across various disciplines
  *   Communication of research agenda, progress and results.
Minimum Qualification

  *   Pursuing a PhD or Master’s degree in Vision Science, Perceptual Psychology, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or a related field with an emphasis on perception.
  *   Must be currently enrolled in a full time degree program and returning to the
  *   program after the completion of the internship.
  *   Excellent interpersonal skills, cross-group and cross-culture collaboration.
  *   High levels of creativity and quick problem solving capabilities
  *   Proven track record of achieving significant results
  *   Ability to obtain work authorization in the United States in 2017
Preferred Qualifications

  *   Demonstrated software engineering experience via an internship, work experience, coding competitions or PhD papers
  *   Knowledge of optics, signal processing, mathematical modeling and/or simulation expertise
  *   Ability to design and perform psychophysical experiments
