🚀 Internship

Research Scientist Intern, AI NLP (PhD)


30d ago

🚀 Off-cycle


Rolling basis


  • Meta is seeking Research Interns to join our Natural Language Processing teams. These teams are part of the Facebook AI Research (FAIR) organization within Meta, working to advance the state of the art in natural language understanding and generation.These systems are deployed at scale to break language barriers, propose relevant content, enable people to understand and communicate with anyone, and to provide a safe experience—no matter what language they speak.
  • The opportunities and challenges of this work are immense. Our research results routinely find their way into large-scale systems that billions of people use to connect and communicate.
  • Our research spans multiple areas across NLP and machine learning, including deep learning/neural networks, machine translation, speech translation, natural language understanding and generation, language modeling, pretraining, low-resource NLP, question answering, dialogue, and cross-lingual and cross-domain transfer learning.
