Position Summary: The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC) is one of seven federally supported National Primate Research Centers and the only one in the Midwest. The WNPRC's mission is to increase the understanding of basic primate biology and to improve human health and quality of life through research. To accomplish this, the WNPRC helps discover treatments, preventions and cures for human disease; generates new knowledge of primate biology, from the molecular and whole animal levels to the understanding of primate ecosystems; facilitates research progress by providing expertise, resources and training to scientists worldwide; and collects primate information and disseminates to the research community and to the public. Based in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education (OVCRGE) of the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison), the WNPRC has strong, long-established research and teaching links to the School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH), the College of Letters and Science (L&S), the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM).

A position is available in the WNPRC Electronic Health Record (EHR) Services Unit. The EHR Services Unit is responsible for the ongoing development, support and maintenance of the WNPRC's Electronic Health Record (EHR) application. EHR is a web application built as custom Java modules for LabKey (https://www.labkey.org) using PostgreSQL for data persistence. EHR houses a wide array of information, such as animal health records, research data, research protocol information, and employee training records. EHR is utilized by faculty, staff, and researchers both within and outside of the UW-Madison to gather data for research purposes. Additionally, EHR is utilized by WNPRC staff, including veterinarians, researchers, and care staff, to assist in the day-to-day care of the animals.

The successful candidate for this position will work closely with veterinarians, animal care staff, faculty, researchers, and other WNPRC personnel, as well as UW and non-UW affiliates to further develop the web application used to manage nonhuman primate health records and information. This position involves the need to work in a changing environment while managing multiple projects simultaneously. Management will help determine priorities in order to focus efforts to solve different projects. It will also be extremely important to keep users apprised on the status of the requested projects.
