Facebook AI International Research Training 2021

Applications are now open for the Facebook Artificial Intelligence (AI) Residency Program cohort 2021.

The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Residency Program is a one-year research training position designed to give candidates hands-on experience with artificial intelligence research while working in Facebook AI. The program will pair the candidate with an AI Researcher and Engineer who will both guide his/her project. With the team, the candidate will pick a research problem of mutual interest and then devise new deep learning techniques to solve it. We also encourage collaborations beyond the assigned mentors. The research will be communicated to the academic community by submitting papers to top academic venues (for example, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR, ICCV, ACL, EMNLP, etc.), as well as open-source code releases and/or product impact.

Job Responsibilities
  • Learn how to perform research in deep learning and AI.
  • Translate ideas into practical code (in frameworks such as PyTorch).
  • Write up research results in the form of an academic paper or open-source projects.
  • Understand prior work and existing literature.
  • Work with mentors to identify the problem(s) of interest and develop novel AI techniques.
Duration: one-year

The Residency pays a competitive salary and relocation for those that are eligible.


Facebook encourages applications from people who have a strong technical background and are passionate about AI research. 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, neuroscience, and bioinformatics. Prior experience in machine learning is certainly a strength.
