Expertise in the area of laboratory animal and comparative veterinary pathology is critical for the incumbent to be successful in this position. This position requires a highly motivated, detail oriented, and organized individual to work as an integral part of a team providing routine and emergency diagnostic services and research support at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center at the University of Wisconsin Madison. The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC) is based in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The WNPRC is an Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) accredited facility housing rhesus macaques, common marmosets, and cynomolgus macaques.

Pathology Services Unit (PSU) staff work cooperatively with other WNPRC units to provide timely and accurate diagnosis and effective monitoring and interpretation of acute and chronic conditions affecting colony animals and subjects assigned to research studies. PSU staff serve an integral role in research at the WNPRC, offering services including but not limited to: clinical pathology testing; cytology evaluation; surgical biopsy; gross post mortem examination; specialized sample collections; and histology with unbiased interpretation of lesions in reference to the experimental questions and goals. PSU pathologists work closely with investigators to provide advice concerning protocol development (both pre and post award), anatomy, disease pathogenesis, sample collection procedures, and the modification and creation of innovative procedures to answer research hypotheses. Moreover, the outstanding services provided by the PSU rapidly identify confounding effects of pathogens and unanticipated biologic responses in both research studies and the primate breeding colony. The PSU works closely with investigators researching infectious diseases, vaccine development, reproductive health, transgenic animal models, models of aging, models of neurodegenerative diseases and neurophysiology, and stem cell biology. The PSU is responsible for the collection, banking/inventory, and distribution of nonhuman primate samples through both the Nonhuman Primate Biological Materials Distribution (NHPBMD) core and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) Nonhuman Primate Tissue Bank. These banked tissues and biological samples are available to locally, nationally, and internationally located investigators for both research and education.
