Applications are open for a 12-month 0.5FTE research fellowship with the Ophthalmic Pathology Research Program at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, commencing in January or July 2023. Fellows will have a conjoint appointment at UNSW.

The Shirley and John Sarks Fellowship is a unique and prestigious training experience made available by the generosity of Drs Shirley and John Sarks. The intention of the fellowship is to provide highly motivated, recently graduated RANZCO Fellows or advanced trainee ophthalmologists an opportunity to discover, understand and build on the knowledge of the Sarks Archive, the world’s most significant clinicopathological collection of AMD eyes.

The fellow will gain a unique understanding of retinal microanatomy and histopathology and its clinical correlates, as it relates to ageing and age-related macular degeneration. Fellows will spend 2.5 days per week working on the archive, producing original research and teaching resources. This training opportunity is ideal for candidates with a strong interest in medical retina and/or vitreoretinal surgery. Up to two fellowships are available in 2023.

Find out more and apply via the SVHA website.
