Flawless is shattering the boundaries of traditional filmmaking with its groundbreaking suite of Gen AI film editing tools. Our mission is to empower filmmakers with cutting-edge technology that allows creativity without compromise, expands storytelling possibilities, and delivers unparalleled visual and emotional experiences.

What we are looking for:

As a research scientist intern in the computer vision/neural rendering team at Flawless, you will work with a close-knit, passionate group of world-class researchers and scientists to tackle some of the most challenging problems in generative neural rendering, including neural face tracking and rendering in-the-wild. Our work in visual dubbing is just the tip of the iceberg, we’re developing countless exciting products based on our cornerstone research. This is an unbelievable opportunity to be on the cutting edge of the generative revolution.

Flawless is looking for smart, self-motivated, and committed Research Interns to join our research team in Los Angeles, US. Our interns are given challenging research problems and are provided with a clear project plan during the course of the internship. At Flawless, we want interns to succeed, and we have high expectations for performance, either by advancing the state of the art or bringing unique scientific value to our business.

Research focus areas include:

3D face reconstruction/modeling in images and videos
Vision Transformers (ViTs) for tracking/detectionImage/video (portrait) synthesis using, e.g., GAN, neural textures, etc.
Neural head avatars
Please be advised that only candidates with expertise in at least two of the areas above will be considered.
This internship is set to start ASAP.
