Centre for Eye Research Australia: Managing Director 

Australia’s leading eye research institute

The Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA) conducts research with real-life impact looking at the causes of eye diseases, preventing blindness through earlier diagnosis and better treatments, and restoring sight.

With an international team of more than 140 staff and students, CERA’s vision is to become a world-leading centre of integrated vision research, translation and innovation – where clinicians, patients, researchers, industry and investors come together to develop treatments and technologies that transform patient lives. CERA’s research strategy is to maximise our impact through focusing on three research themes – aging eye disease, vision regeneration, and pathways to patients. Over the last few years CERA has invested significantly to build its capacity in the disciplines of innovation, engagement and commercialisation.

CERA is seeking to appoint an entrepreneurial leader to work with a dynamic Board and Executive team to foster research excellence, build organisational capability and create the partnerships that will translate research into treatments and cures for vision impairment.

Interest is invited from internationally recognised leaders in medical research in the field of eye health. This role also requires strong leadership skills to drive CERA’s future strategic direction.

The Managing Director will also hold an appointment with the University of Melbourne as the Ringland Anderson Chair of Ophthalmology in the Department of Surgery (Melbourne Medical School). Based at The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, this three-way partnership is key to the successful translation of research from the bench to the bedside.

Odgers Berndtson executive search is managing the process on behalf of the selection committee.

For a confidential discussion please contact the advising consultants Dr Dennis Feeney, +61 2 8905 3722 or Ms Caroline Dever +61 429939399 or via email at MDCERA@odgersberndtson.com

Applications close on the 7th May 2018
