      UP/AML has in its permanent staff 5 university professors and 3 PhD holders (working in the field of Composite Material, Structural Dynamics, Non-Destructive Testing and Numerical Methods) and 4 technicians and support staff. Currently, 20 Engineers and PhD student are working in the Lab. in various R&D projects. As part of its continued growth, UP/AML is continually looking for exceptional people to join its staff. Vacancies may exist to support; new projects, increased requirements in a core competency area or to increase our core competency.
