GBS Faculty Appointments

Participating GBS faculty are expected to be full-time UAB faculty with a current UAB Graduate School Faculty appointment. You are expected to be scientifically productive and posses expertise in the themes in which you request membership. You are also expected to be, or become, actively involved in one or more GBS themes. Evidence of such current or planned active involvement in GBS theme(s) includes:

  • Mentoring a GBS student,
  • Teaching in GBS courses,
  • Service on student thesis or examination committees,
  • Judging GBS rotation talks or posters,
  • Teaching in advanced courses in GBS programs,
  • Serving as a preceptor for a rotation student, or
  • Interviewing prospective students.

Funding to support students' stipends and research projects is expected but not essential for GBS participation. However, to accept thesis students—and in most cases rotation students—into your laboratory, you will need to provide evidence of adequate funding.

Application materials for GBS faculty status review include:

  • A completed GBS Faculty Requested Information Form,
  • A current NIH SF424 (R&R) Biosketch,
  • An NIH Other Support or similar document with both current and pending research support,
  • And information on past and current trainees.

The application form is available by contacting Savitha Memula, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., (205) 996-9798. Participating faculty will be reviewed on a three year cycle.
