Faculty teaching in a classroom.How has UAB become one of the country’s leading public urban research universities in a mere five decades? Our intensely collaborative, entrepreneurial approach has allowed us to challenge the status quo in education, health and research — and earned recognition as America’s best large employer overall and the country’s best employer for diversity among colleges and universities from Forbes in 2021.

Our faculty are drawn to UAB for its close partnerships with the city that gave birth to the Civil Rights Movement, for the quality of life, the nationally recognized restaurants and the world-class parks and trails. They also see that ideas and passion are what counts here, rather than sticking to traditional departmental or disciplinary boundaries. At UAB, you will find a Research 1 institution with more than $640 million in research awards in 2020 and an annual economic impact of more than $7.15 billion. That scale gives you the ability to make a real impact on lives in our city, state and beyond.

Big ideas are welcome here, and you will find that the support they receive is more than lip service. There are many opportunities to secure pilot grants for teaching, research and scholarship; to develop through innovative professional education and mentorship at our Center for Teaching and Learning; and to launch new initiatives through campus-wide platforms such as the UAB Grand Challenge. What are our priorities? Our strategic plan, Forging the Future, guides our development in the classroom, laboratory, studio and clinic.

UAB is committed to leading the way on diversity, equity and inclusion at all levels. We highly encourage candidates from underrepresented minorities to apply.
