Job Description:

Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) focuses on delivering Facebook's vision through Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The compute performance and power efficiency requirements of Virtual and Augmented Reality require custom silicon. The Facebook Silicon team is driving the state of the art forward with breakthrough work in computer vision, machine learning, mixed reality, graphics, displays, sensors, and new ways to map the human body. Our chips will enable AR and VR devices where our real and virtual world will mix and match throughout the day. We believe the only way to achieve our goals is to look at the entire stack, from transistor, through architecture, to firmware and algorithms.

We are seeking an intern to carry out development of simulation frameworks and models for system power, performance analyses. This will require close collaboration with power and performance architects in creating new simulation features, interfaces, and models as well as improving existing ones.

Our internships are twelve (12) to sixteen (16) weeks long and we have various start dates throughout the year.

* Contribute to development of simulation frameworks for system power/performance estimation * Implement communication interfaces between power and performance simulations * Collaborate with power/performance architects and assist in model creation and updates * Perform use-case simulations and quantify power/performance impact of design decisions * Work across disciplines, brainstorm ideas, and build new methodologies * Communicate project agenda, progress and results

* Currently has, or is in the process of obtaining, a PhD degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or related field * Knowledge of computer architecture and SoC design through related academic course work * Familiarity with silicon power modeling and power estimation * Experience with power and/or performance simulations * Proficiency in Python scripting language is required for this position * Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration * Must obtain work authorization in the country of employment at the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment

* Experience with SoC power modeling and pre-silicon power estimation * Experience with power and/or performance simulation framework development * Experience in hardware power, performance, and area trade offs * Experience with C or C++ object-oriented programming * Working knowledge of SQL is a plus * Intent to return to degree-program after the completion of the internship
