UAB is less political than other universities for which I have worked.
The quality of your work environment and what you can achieve is going to depend on the capability of your Chair. Unfortunately UAB has no policy to lemit the duration of Chairs so over time they tend to lose their enthusiasm and drive.
Advice to Management
Why not give Chair's a package that has a 4 or 5 year time limit and is renewable once. That way people will not get burned out, they will have to be accomplishing something and it makes an upward path available for new faculty with fresh ideas.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at University of Alabama at Birmingham (Birmingham, AL).
I was contacted a few days after I completed my application. I interviewed with two people. It only took about 30 minutes. I was asked for a list of references and told there would be a second interview. I never really got a second interview. I was contacted to arrange a time to speak on the phone. I was then told I would be contacted again soon. I never heard anything back. I later received an automatic email saying another candidate was selected.
