Our Equity Fellowship for Excellence in Vision Research will provide a unique career development opportunity for a woman or gender-diverse scientist with high potential for future leadership in eye research.

The Fellowship is a key part of CERA’s Gender Action Plan and will be supported by funding from the CERA Foundation and other philanthropic sources. The three-year duration will provide the continuity and momentum needed to support the Fellow in their work to build competitiveness for external funding. Working at CERA

We offer attractive employment benefits including salary packaging (making part of your salary tax-free), flexible working arrangements and family friendly policies.
