The UKAAM is a small unit serving a lot of people. Our staff consists of an IT Manager and the Director, consulting in strategic decisions the Steering Committee and the UKAAM Student Committee. During the academic year, we also typically hire a seasonal work study assistant. The UKAAM members include 30-50 graduate students, represented by the UKAAM Student Committee, approximately 80 faculty, and 10-12 postdoctoral fellows and research associates. We provide access to our facilities not only to our members but also to visitors and guest users collaborating with the UKAAM faculty. The UKAAM encourages and welcomes visiting researchers. Our Institute is proud of its alumni, many of whom hold prominent positions in the academia and in the industry.
