Facebook Residency Program – Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Deadline: 31 Janury 2020
Open to: People who have a strong technical background and are passionate about AI research
Benefits: Residents are paid a competitive salary


The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Residency Program is a one-year research training position designed to give you hands-on experience with artificial intelligence research while working in Facebook AI.

The program will pair you with an AI Researcher and Engineer who will both guide your project. With the team, you 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.

The AI Residency experience is designed to kickstart a career in the field. This is a full-time program that cannot be undertaken in conjunction with a university study or a full-time job.


People who have a strong technical background and are passionate about AI research. Prior experience in machine learning is certainly a strength, but 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 are also encouraged to apply.


  • Residents are paid a competitive salary;
  • The residency is ideal preparation for applying to top graduate programs in machine learning;
  • Offered 12 months as a full-time position.
