DATABASE ADMINISTRATOR

Job no: 99924-AS
Work type: Staff-Full Time
Department:WSLH/INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
Location: Madison
Categories: Information Systems/Technology

Position Summary:

The Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH) with 350 staff, six divisions and a budget in excess of $40,000,000 serves as the public, environmental, and occupational health laboratory for the State of Wisconsin. WSLH is a public sector entity, attached to the University of Wisconsin, but with separate statutory authority. Its administrative and clinical laboratory functions are located in the heart of the UW-Madison campus; and its environmental and occupational health and information management functions located on the far east side of Madison.

Wisconsin State Statutes direct the WSLH to provide analytical support as well as teaching facilities and a full range of laboratory services to the Department of Health and Family Services, the Department of Natural Resources, as well as county emergency management, EMS/HAZMAT, local water utilities, waste treatment plants, licensed physicians, veterinarians, local health officers, resource management officials, coroners, and local law enforcement officials. The WSLH has been designated a Bioterrorism Level 3 (highest) laboratory, a Level 1 (highest) Chemical Terrorism response laboratory (one of only 10 in the United States), and is serving as a one of only two laboratories in the nation (the other is the CDC) to provide advanced virological testing services. The WSLH is directly linked to over a dozen federal agencies from the Office of Homeland Security to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. Staff of the WSLH are trained to participate in the use of the Incident Command System and must be prepared to implement a continuity of operations plan.

We are seeking an experienced database administrator to join our Office of Information Systems Operations team.
This position is responsible for working with a team to ensure optimum performance, integrity, and availability of enterprise and departmental databases and their related infrastructure components, and for providing expert database services, and systems support to the staff in the various labs. The enterprise databases are used by applications systems that support every testing process and staff member in the laboratory system; the decisions and quality-of-work of the Database Administrators (DBA) therefore have significant and immediate impact on the entire enterprise.

This position is responsible for administration, database management, system software, and application support.
Hours will be primarily M-F 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Occasional evening and weekend work is required.
