  5. Write up research results in the form of an academic paper and submit to a top conference in the relevant area.
  • Eligibility

— Bachelors degree in a STEM field such as Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent practical experience.

— Completed coursework in: Linear Algebra, Probability, Calculus, or equivalent.

— Coding experience in a general-purpose programming language, such as Python or C/C++.

— Familiarity with a deep learning platform such as PyTorch, Caffe, Theano, or TensorFlow.

— Ability to communicate complex research in a clear, precise, and actionable manner.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Research experience in machine learning or AI (as established for instance via publications and/or code releases).
  • Significant contributions to open-source projects, demonstrating strong math, engineering, statistics, or machine learning skills.
  • A strong track record of scholastic excellence.

Other requirements

  • Applications are encouraged from people who have a strong technical background and are passionate about AI research.
  • Prior experience in machine learning is certainly a strength but they seek people from a diverse range of backgrounds, including areas ostensibly unrelated to machine learning such as (but not limited to) math, physics, finance, economics, linguistics, computational social science, and bioinformatics.

Accepted research residents will be based in Facebook Menlo Park and New York locations. If a candidate requires a visa to work in the US, they will explore what options are available once they are accepted onto the program.

Application Requirements

To apply to the program, you will need to complete the application and submit the following items:

  1. CV/Resume (including links to GitHub, professional webpages, publications, or blogposts as applicable)
  2. Personal statement
