- Requests for faculty recruitment are made via the online tool, Faculty Recruitment Request Form (FRR); http://www.uab.edu/uabforms.
- Requests are reviewed and approved electronically at the department, Dean, Vice Provost, and Provost levels. Recruitment advertisements must be approved by the Provost, Dean (or designee), Affirmative Action Officer, and department before being published.
