Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning 
University of Sydney 
Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in Lighting 
Position Number 653/0310 

The Faculty of Architecture Design & Planning is one of the world’s leading 
lighting teaching and research centres.  Its graduate professional lighting 
program, started in 1979, has graduates on all continents and, in Australia, its 
graduates dominate both the design and supply industries. The program 
emphasises both the art and science of lighting and is firmly based on the 
understanding of people’s response to light. 

Our research facilities can support human factors, colour and daylighting 
research. Opportunities also exist for collaborative research and teaching within 
the university and with institutions around the world. Research has concentrated 
on how people see in real complex environments, colour in design and on 
daylight availability and appropriate design techniques for regions that are 
mainly sunny. For more information about the Design Science (Illumination 
Design) program please visit: 

A career opportunity now exists for an individual to continue the work initiated 
by Professor Warren Julian as we wish to maintain the current mix of activities
